Used to be, when you thought of West Virginia and energy, you thought of coal. Indeed, West Virginia remains a big coal producer, ranking No. 2 in the country (behind Wyoming) in 2014 U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) statistics. But the U.S. energy renaissance – driven by advanced hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling – has the state’s natural gas production skyrocketing, with benefits to the state and the entire country.

Our series highlighting the economic and jobs impact of energy in each of the 50 states continues today with West Virginia. We started our focus on the state level with Virginia on June 29 and continued this week with Missouri, Indiana and North Carolina. The energy impacts of the states individually combine to form energy’s national economic and jobs picture: 9.8 million jobs supported and $1.2 trillion in value added.

Information covered in this series can be found online here, arranged on an interactive map of the United States. State-specific information will be populated on this map as the series continues.

It's hard to overstate the impact of the shale energy revolution in this country, spurred by fracturing technology and innovations in horizontal drilling. It's a revolution marked by dynamic economic growth, job creation and, of course the energy to drive our country's future.

In today's episode, I interview Dr. Tim Considine of the University of Wyoming about his recent study that quantifies the economic impact of developing natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation, which stretches beneath large portions of New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. His study also looks at state policies that could hinder natural gas production in the region and slow economic opportunities.

Natural gas production in the Marcellus Shale could generate nearly $6 billion in government revenue, 280,000 new jobs and more than 18 billion cubic feet of clean-burning natural gas per day, according to a new study.

Interest is rising in a relatively new natural gas discovery called the Utica Shale. It lies beneath the Marcellus Shale and stretches from Canada's Quebec Province through Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, western Virginia and into West Virginia.
