The Marcellus Shale, the hottest natural gas boom in the United States, is offering unexpected business opportunities to Pennsylvania.
Clarion University’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has stepped forward to help local business benefit from this boom. Through a five-part seminar, Clarion SBDC is working with local economic development agencies to inform business owners on how they can take advantage of the economic benefits of the Marcellus Shale. The series provides information on the benefits and employment opportunities projected to boost the local economy within the next decade.
The Marcellus Shale formation is driving energy firms to Pennsylvania, and the influx of dollars is creating significant business opportunities with natural gas and service companies, supporting small businesses and worker spending. Plus, the spending from lease and royalty payments promises to ripple through our economy for years to come.
