A growing fraction of the oil and gas produced in the United States comes from unconventional source--geographically extensive accumulations of hydrocarbons in low-permeability rock such as shale or siltstone. Generally, these resources--which include shale gas, coalbed methane, and gas hydrates--are freed from the rock by hydraulic fracturing. However, the consequences of this practice, and other aspects of unconventional hydrocarbon production... More >>
The workshop examined the following three questions: (1) What projections have been made by government agencies for the U.S. supply of and demand for natural gas over the next 10 to 20 years? (2) Where are the current natural gas reserves and resources? (3) By what means and by how much can future reserves, resources, and production be increased? More >>
