PITTSBURGH (AP) — An industry group plans to release the findings of a new economic impact report on Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania.

The Marcellus Shale Coalition says the report will be released Wednesday afternoon and include information on employment and broad economic impacts, as well as Marcellus production forecasts.

The group has scheduled a press conference at U.S. Steel's Mon Valley Works Training Hub in Duquesne with members of the coalition and their suppliers, as well as U.S. Steel leadership.

More than 3,300 wells have been drilled across Pennsylvania in just the last few years, with many more planned.
