Atkinson Center faculty fellow David Kay is quoted in a recent Newsday story reporting that the U.S. Energy Information Administration projects that there are 55.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in New York's Marcellus and Utica shales — significantly lower than the 173 trillion cubic feet the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation estimated last year.  But the pace and scale of drilling depends on difficult to predict factors, including price, says Kay, a Senior Extension Associate with the Community and Regional Development Institute in the Department of Development Sociology.
