Marcellus Shale & Natural Gas


We are fortunate to be located in the heart of the Marcellus Shale formation.  95,000 square miles constitute this region and Ferry Electric Company is prepared to meet the needs of all of our customers in this demanding market.  We are consistently striving to achieve greatness and innovation here at Ferry Electric Company.  With that ideal at the forefront, we felt compelled to lend our expertise to a process that could ultimately supply U.S. consumers’ energy needs for hundreds of years. 

Responsiveness & Safety

Ferry Electric Company is positioned to meet the immediate response-time and aggressive schedule required by this emerging market.  Our inclusion in the Shale progression is both rewarding and exciting.  After prudently monitoring how technological advances in horizontal drilling paired with hydraulic fracturing have allowed energy companies to unlock such vast energy resources, while protecting drinking water sources and the environment, the opportunity to be a partner in the Marcellus Shale development seemed natural. 

Although our well established C&I Division tackles the large projects here at Ferry Electric Company, we also operate a Service Division to swiftly handle any size emergency or after-hours customer need.  We recognize that when dealing with 400 year-old rock, containing an estimated 410 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, safety is principal in this endeavor.  At Ferry Electric Company, we have the workforce to provide our customers with value, consistency, and a singularly driven determination to finish the project in a timely and safe manner. 

With 85 plus years operating out of South Western Pennsylvania we have the resources for labor, material, tools and equipment for any Shale inspired project.
