Here are the Real Faces of the Marcellus Shale

Faces of ShaleSometimes it seems like the oil and gas industry, particularly in the Marcellus/Utica region, is some monolithic entity. It is not. Shale is all about people. The Marcellus Shale Coalition has just released a powerful new video called “The Faces of Shale” (watch it below). In the video average people talk about the shale industry and what it has meant to them–by providing jobs and income. It literally puts a face to what is sometimes a faceless entity. Who doesn’t love to hear someone else’s story?! Don’t listen to the lies Big Green pedals. Instead, listen to the people whose lives have been transformed by the miracle of fracking in the Marcellus Shale–people who thank God for the Marcellus…

Following its annual meeting this week, the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) released a new year-in-review video titled The Faces of Shale.

“While there’s no question that our industry continues to face strong headwinds, the economic, environmental and energy security benefits tied to responsible shale development continue to positively improve livelihoods and communities across the Commonwealth,” said MSC president David Spigelmyer.

“The personal stories highlighted in this video are representative of the tens of thousands of hard-working Pennsylvanians across our industry, particularly in the small business and labor community, who are deeply committed to moving Pennsylvania forward and bettering our children’s futures,” added Spigelmyer. “Shale presents a historic opportunity to revitalize our economy, especially our manufacturing base. We need common sense policies, however, to make certain that this great potential is not unnecessarily limited.”*
