Utica & Marcellus Shale

Got shale? We've got rail.

If your business involves the Utica/Marcellus Shale, then your safest, most efficient and cost-effective transportation solution likely includes G&W subsidiary railroads. 

The company's rail lines in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York directly overlay the core development areas of the Utica and western Marcellus shale and offer connections with multiple Class I railroads.

Oil and natural gas shale development needs rail. Typically, a shale well requires 30 carloads of inbound well service materials (pipe, sand, aggregates and lubricants) and can produce more than 20 carloads of outbound materials (drill cuttings, brine water, NGLs and crude).

Rail provides producers and marketers with benefits such as sourcing and market flexibility, reduced timing to market, limited permitting requirements and reduced capital needs.

If you are developing wells in the Marcellus or Utica market, contact us to learn why we outscore trucking and the overall railroad industry in customer satisfaction. We offer railcar switching services as well as transload, storage, and brown/greenfield development sites and have already expanded yard and track capacity to handle drilling-related business.
