Marcellus Shale

Noble Energy's presence in the Marcellus Shale began in 2011 through a joint venture (JV) agreement with CONSOL Energy. The Marcellus Shale is recognized as one of the lowest cost domestic shale plays, and is located near major demand markets in the northeast U.S. 

We are implementing an Integrated Development Plan approach in the Marcellus, similar to the DJ Basin. Our activities are resulting in a significant reduction in well costs and enhanced well completion techniques.
