Drexel University’s research magazine XCEL, published an article on the Marcellus Shale Research at Drexel University. Photos in the article come from a field trip taken by faculty and students from Drexel’s Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department as well as program managers from the Electric Power Research Institute. Cabot Oil and Gas and Energy in Depth were gracious hosts of the Drexel contingent, and gave us guided tours of producing wells, water treatment facilities, drill sites, and a site where hydraulic fracturing was occurring. It was a long but exciting day, and gave us the opportunity to learn a lot about the process of hydraulic fracturing. The issues related to natural gas extraction in the Marcellus region will continue to be one of importance for years to come, and it is important to understand all aspects of the process.
