Marcellus Shale Surveys

Providing Energy, Protecting Heritage

New natural gas projects are providing for the country's energy needs, but regulations often require evaluations of historic and archaeological properties, complicating project timelines.

Heberling Associates works with the energy industry to:

  • identify potential constraints
  • creatively mitigate project effects on historic properties
  • guide important projects through the regulatory process

Marcellus Shale

Heberling Associates has worked with a number of companies involved in Marcellus shale projects to complete Phase I archaeological surveys for stream and wetlands crossings, water intakes, and pipelines associated with new gas drilling operations in Pennsylvania.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stream encroachment permits require that Phase I archaeological surveys be completed for stream and wetlands crossings, and other federal and state regulations also mandate cultural resource clearances. Investigation of these areas requires a rapid response and attention to the scheduling needs of the client. Heberling Associates coordinates with the client to complete the field survey quickly and effectively after notice to proceed and submits the report promptly upon completion of the field survey to expedite the project. Heberling Associates has developed an impressive record of preparing reports that meet or exceed the requirements of review agencies within the project schedule.
