Advocacy

Shale Energy Alliance is focused on safe, responsible, and rational shale development across the Appalachian Basin and its prolific Marcellus and Utica shale plays. The Shale Energy Alliance will work with federal, state, and local election officials to ensure that:

  • Landowners and mineral rights owners are able to extract greater value in the form of royalties
  • Producers can develop these resources economically and sensibly
  • States, counties and localities benefit from the increased job creation that results, as well as from much needed tax revenue
  • And we all benefit from lower energy prices and increased energy independence.

Not only will Shale Energy Alliance fight for for sensible policies, laws, and regulations across the region — we will also engage politically.

Shale Energy Alliance is committed to supporting candidates that align with our agenda and opposing candidates who don’t. We will do this through a variety of ways to advance policies that promote natural gas development.
