Marcellus Shale Coalition Releases Guidance On Drilling And Completion Phases

The Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) announced that it has updated its recommended practices to include the Drilling and Completions phases of natural gas exploration. These recommendations cover a wide range of topics with regard to bringing a well into production, including regulatory planning and well flowback. The MSC had previously released seven additional sets of guidelines that cover site planning, motor vehicles, water pipelines, and more. The addition of the Drilling and Completions documents will help exploration and production companies in the region carry out their business in a safe, responsible manner, according the MSC.
