Shale-jobs study

Shale-jobs study

A six-state study found the number of jobs directly related to shale drilling fell well below industry estimates.

The report, released Wednesday by the Multi-State Shale Research Collaborative, looked at the jobs impact of drilling along the Marcellus and Utica shales, which span New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia.

Between 2005 and 2012, the survey found that fewer than four new jobs directly related to shale drilling were created for each new well. That figure was significantly lower than estimates in some industry-funded studies that as many as 31 new direct jobs would be created per well, according to the survey.

Howard Hanna Real Estate Services earlier this month wrapped up its two-day convention, which brought more than 3,000 agents and managers to the Cleveland Convention Center.

The convention was free and featured more than 100 sessions with speakers, motivators and real-estate teachers.

The company estimates that participants filled 800 hotel rooms and generated about $1 million for the region.
