Pennsylvania budget gap heightens severance tax debate

Report summary

Pennsylvania is the largest natural gas producing state that does not impose a severance tax, but rather levies a local impact fee. According to Wood Mackenzie analysis and data from the Pennsylvania DEP, state production from the Marcellus in 2013 was nearly 3.1 tcf of natural gas, ~13% of total U.S. output. This matter is being debated vigorously and the outcome could have material implications on the value of companies' positions in the Marcellus.
