Abstract: Abstract This chapter examines the direct economic impact of a Marcellus Shale well located in Southwestern Pennsylvania. This study is an assessment of the economic impacts emphasizing the direct economic impact, rather than just focusing on the perceived benefits and impacts affecting the region. Our analysis is based on extensive field research, including a site visit and interviews with industry participants. From this field research, we determined that the direct costs of bringing a Marcellus Shale well to production are in excess of seven million dollars.
