At times, multiple “layers” are displayed in a single map to provide context where one layer might have impact or relate to another. Maps have been produced from the ShaleNavigator web-based mapping system and the Select Analytics desktop mapping programs. Use of information provided in this report is at your own risk.

  6. 6. Section I - Overview GUIDE TO USING THE COUNTY MAPS #1 – The municipality or operator name is followed by two sets of numbers, with the second number in parentheses. Example: Hanover – 15 (7). The first number - “15” in this case - shows the number of permits issued. The second number - “(7)” in this case - indicates how many wells the permits were issued for. Usually a single well requires several permits during drilling, to allow the driller to continue to the next stage. #2 – A purple dot indicates where a well pad is located. Each well pad can have from one to ten wells on it. Typically a pad will contain 2-4 wells. Because of the size of the maps (vastly reduced to show an entire county), sometimes the purple dots will be “on top of each other.” In this example, Range Resources has 9 wells with activity Jan-Jun 2012, but only 4 purple dots, meaning some locations have more than one well drilled per pad, or that the pads are so close as to be indistinguishable on the map. #3 – The boundary of each county is indicated with a blue outline. County names are also in the same blue color. #4 – Major gas pipelines are indicated with red lines and the name of the pipeline somewhere along the line.©Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2012 Volume 2 Sample Pages
