Tracking the Economic Growth (Jobs, Housing, Investment & Information)
Due to Shale Play Developments in the Ohio Valley Tri-State Area
THE OHIO VALLEY BOOM
The "Boom" ... refers to the development of one of the largest energy discoveries ever made in the United States, the Utica and Marcellus oil and gas Shale Plays. A vast ocean of oil and gas exists within shale rock formations, three to nine thousand feet beneath the surface of the Ohio River Valley (eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia). Technological advancements in shale oil and gas recovery have made possible the economic production of this energy on a large scale and have spurred an unprecedented explosion of prosperity that will grow geometrically over the next two-plus decades.
Over the past two years that this site ... www.OhioValleyBoom.com ... has been documenting this energy revolution, tens of billions of dollars have been invested in leasing land for oil and gas recovery, drilling activities, building pipelines and other transport systems, building oil and gas processing facilities and water treatment plants. As a result of this investment, employment, population, local business, new housing and property values have all begun to surge. But, the development thus far is really just the tip of the new prosperity iceberg. The long-term economic outlook for the Ohio Valley is incredibly bright with hundreds of billions of dollars slated for additional investment in oil- and gas-related infrastructure, including: fractionation plants, gathering, storage, and transportation systems, water treatment facilities, etc. Additionally, because of the close proximity to energy sources, steel, plastics, and other manufacturing plants are moving into the Ohio Valley.
