[No one disputes that there's a lot of natural gas in the Marcellus Shale, which stretches from upstate New York to West Virginia. But exactly how much gas is there?
The US Geologic Survey looked at, quote, new geologic information and engineering data, and put reserves at 84 trillion cubic feet. That's 80 percent less than an earlier estimate made by the Energy Department, and an even smaller percentage of what energy companies have been saying.
For them, this could spell trouble. New York's Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, recently subpoenaed documents in a probe of whether energy companies misled shareholders with overly optimistic assessments of gas reserves.
