The Marcellus and Utica shale plays are one of the largest and highly concentrated natural gas resources in the US, located in the Appalachia Basin, US, along with other smaller plays. Gas production in the Marcellus and Utica plays is carried out in the states of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and New York.

The natural gas plays of the Appalachia Basin saw a minimal change in production and drilling activity during the economic downturn caused by Covid-19 in 2020. During the fourth quarter of 2020 and into January 2021, the Marcellus and Utica shale plays saw an increase in production before levelling out during the first and second quarters of 2021. By 2025 the natural gas production in both the shales is expected to exceed its pre-pandemic level, while crude oil production is forecasted to recover at slower pace during the same period.
