Welcome to Pennsylvania General Energy.
PGE’s website includes information about our company, about the way we do business and about the development of oil and natural gas in the Appalachian Basin. Oil and natural gas production has a rich past in this region, dating back to Col. Edwin Drake’s first well in 1859. With our country’s need for new and indigenous sources of energy, the region’s future has the potential to be as exciting as its past.
The pages of this website provide a look at how PGE develops new oil and natural gas reserves and develops its wells in a safe and responsible manner, and how we focus on creating positive and sustained relationship with the people we engage in the course of operating our business. On behalf of PGE’s dedicated employees, I hope you find this website to be useful and informative.

PGE in the News
PGE starts 2013 announcing plans to be the first PA based company to run a hydraulic fracturing operation in the Appalachian Basin on a natural gas-diesel fuel blend. We're proud to work with another Pennsylvania company, Universal Well Services, on a technological advancement that will reduce diesel fuel consumption, improve air quality and make travel on local roadways safer.
An Introduction to PGE
PGE is a Warren, Pennsylvania-based company that has been quietly and successfully producing oil and natural gas for over 30 years. PGE currently operates more than 1,100 oil and natural gas wells. Our company has become a leading energy production company in the Appalachian Basin.
We utilize a number of technologies to discover and develop our oil and natural gas wells, often in areas that have been overlooked by other companies. PGE’s geologists and engineers often rely on two or three-dimensional seismic testing to identify oil and natural gas reserves, and use many advanced techniques such as horizontal drilling to stay in the forefront of our industry.
PGE is proud of its contributions to the regional economy and natural environment, as reflected in the company’s motto: “Producing the energy we need, protecting the environment we treasure.” The company’s natural gas is sold to local suppliers and its oil is shipped to local refineries that employ hundreds of our region’s workers, making a significant contribution to our economy.
We are equally proud of our record of environmental stewardship and commitment to use the industry’s best management practices in every aspect of planning, constructing and operating our wells.
