Shale deposits cover vast portions of the United States and they have the potential of producing large amounts of oil and natural gas. The Marcellus Shale deposit runs from New York to Tennessee and includes parts of Virginia. The Bakken Shale formation includes large portion of Montana and North Dakota. The Barnett and Eagle Ford formations take up over half of Texas. There are several more formations in the United States that are just as large. Some are producing oil and gas, with thousands of wells, and some are in the early stages of exploration.
