The annual report issued by the U.S. Energy Information Administration that evaluates how much oil and gas is down there--that we're willing to go get out of the ground. That's a rough definition of "proved reserves". Although it's 2014, data for proved reserves is only available a couple of years after the fact. This report shows that the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania and West Virginia has now surpassed the Texas Barnett Shale as having the most proved reserves of natural gas. It also shows the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas has surpassed the Barnett Shale in North Dakota as having the most proved reserves of oil.
