Chenango County is located in central New York. It is bordered on the south by Broome County, and on the north by Madison County.

According to an August, 2009 report virtually no Marcellus shale drilling had so far taken place within the county, although the southeastern portion of the county appears to be prospective for the Marcellus shale formation. There had been only one vertical Marcellus well drilled. It was situated on a hilltop near Oxford. This town is located in the south-central section of the county.

Norse Energy had been producing from several Herkimer formation wells in the northern section of the county. It had also leased right-of-way and planned to build a pipeline south through Chenango County to the Millennium Pipeline in Broome County. Norse is known to have drilled a few Marcellus shale wells, but it was unclear from the report who had drilled the one existing Chenango vertical Marcellus well.
