Is your property above oil or gas?
There are a number of tools available to find out if your property is above oil and gas, and may be a target for industry development.
If you live in Southwest Pennsylvania, you can visit the Oil and Gas Zoning Map by FracTracker on their website https://www.fractracker.org/2016/08/oil-gas-zoning-southwestern-pa/
To find your area, enter your address into the search bar at top-right of the map. The light blue layer in the back of the map is the Marcellus Shale formation. If your property is located above that layer, you are above shale gas.
