PA Forge The Future

Pennsylvania has world-class energy resources and sits within the third largest natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs) field on the planet. Forge The Future is a project initiated by Pennsylvania businesses from across the state to unlock the economic potential of those natural gas reserves to help Pennsylvania grow its way to more revenue, population and job growth.

In Phase I, Chevron and Peoples Gas invested in a state-wide econometric study to establish a fact base and strategic directions for economic opportunities resulting from the state’s natural gas reserves. The study revealed Pennsylvania has the potential to add $60 billion in GDP growth, more than 100,000 jobs and billions in state tax revenue.

In Phase II, Forge The Future convened nearly 100 business, academic and economic development leaders from across the state to identify definitive strategies for optimizing the economic opportunity at hand and generating broad-based prosperity for all Pennsylvanians.
