Oil/Gas and Marcellus Shale Occupations
Marcellus Shale became a rapidly growing segment of Pennsylvania’s economy in 2008. Much of the research and reporting has been focused around the types of industries associated with Marcellus Shale, as well as the industries that prosper as a result of it.
In 2009, the Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, or CWIA, defined the ongoing Marcellus Shale activities by NAICS codes. The definition included a “core” set of industries that perform the main work (drilling and extraction of natural gas), along with a set of “ancillary” industries that are impacted by or tied to this work. This includes sub-contractors, distributors, and suppliers of necessary equipment.
