John G. Corp, President of Trans Energy, said, "We continue to develop our acreage position in the Marcellus shale. We have been pleased with our initial success and our thirty day initial production results speak for themselves. We continue to learn more about the Marcellus as we drill and complete more wells and hopefully that translates into better wells in the future. We look forward to getting started with our 2011 drilling program."
