Gas Rush Stories: Life Above Marcellus Shale 2011-2012
Shale gas drilling boom has changed the lives of many Pennsylvanians in ways good and bad. Two-thirds of Pennsylvania sits on top of Marcellus shale, one of the world's largest shale gas deposits. While some other states and countries have taken their time to figure out how to proceed with shale gas drilling, Pennsylvania has welcomed the gas industry and allowed it to move ahead in a rapid speed.
An independent filmmaker and journalist Kirsi Jansa has been following and witnessing the various impacts of the shale gas drilling boom in Pennsylvania since the spring of 2011. A 16-minute documentary â€œLife above Marcellus Shale 2011-2012â€ provides multiple perspectives of shale gas drilling. It is based on the first 10 episodes of her short documentary series â€œGas Rush Storiesâ€.
