Shale Energy Resource Center

Over the last several years, advancements in drilling technology have allowed landowners, businesses and our regional economy as a whole to benefit from the Marcellus Shale, the world’s largest onshore reserve of natural gas. Now, the Utica Shale, located a few thousand feet below the Marcellus Shale, is garnering attention as a thicker, even more geographically extensive resource that will continue to drive economic activity for years to come.

With over 260 full-service banking offices located directly within the shale energy corridor, First National Bank of Pennsylvania is prepared to meet the broad personal and commercial financial needs generated by Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale activity.
