Shale Gas


Move Over Coal - Here Comes Shale Gas

"Step aside, coal. Thanks to shale, natural gas is the new energy source of choice. [1] It’s carbon-friendly, has been relatively inexpensive, and there’s plenty of it. Huge shale supplies—and the technology that enables us to access them—have made natural gas cheaper than ever at 70% off its peak in 2008.[2] The US electricity industry is the biggest user of natural gas, spurring a 45% increase in natural gas’s share of the US electricity market over the past decade.[3] The possibility that natural gas may replace coal in powering American electricity is a real one. Fracking, the controversial technique that injects millions of gallons of chemical-laced water into the shale under high pressure, has provided access to reserves (inventory of producible gas) with the potential to meet US demand for decades—even centuries.[4] See More
