Gas Facts

We are excited about the future of natural gas in West Virginia. Technology is making it easier and safer to produce. Increased production inside the US means less dependence on foreign markets. And with the Marcellus Shale home to 84 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable natural gas, West Virginia is poised to continue as a major contributor to America’s energy needs.

Many West Virginians share our view: a strong natural gas industry means a strong West Virginia. Gas Facts, produced annually by WVONGA, presents the data that supports that belief. Highlighting statistics, research, and analysis of energy production both locally and globally, Gas Facts is an excellent resource for those wishing to learn more about our industry’s economic and environmental impact on West Virginia.
