About Us


With the development of the Marcellus Shale play in Pennsylvania and West Virginia and the Utica Shale play in Ohio, the newfound wealth that many people in the tri-state area are enjoying has created a great need to have their oil & gas assets and royalties managed.  This may be the most important financial and estate planning matter that people in our region have ever faced.

ShaleAdvisor.com is operated by Ryan J. Rupert, a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Minerals Manager, and founder of Rupert Tax & Advisory Services LLC, a Washington, Pennsylvania based public accounting and oil & gas consulting firm.

This site is here to make sure that your oil & gas needs are met with the utmost proficiency.  Ryan’s goal is to offer advice and unbiased information on matters related to oil & gas ownership for people impacted by the mighty Marcellus Shale and seemingly-unbounded Utica Shale.
