Merrion Oil & Gas, a New Mexico-based exploration and production business, recently announced plans for a flagship project with U.S. Steel near Pittsburgh, according to Kallanish Energy.
Merrion plans on drilling unconventional natural gas wells at U.S. Steel’s Edgar Thomson Works south of Pittsburgh in the Marcellus Shale. The project includes up to six wells that would be roughly 6,000 feet deep with laterals between 8,500 and 10,000 feet long. State regulators are reviewing plans for the project.
The project also includes two access roads, five freshwater storage tanks and pipelines for natural gas and fresh water, according to Merrion’s two-page fact sheet.
