A chapter in Economics of Unconventional Shale Gas Development, 2015, pp 1-13 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract Shale gas development has changed the energy discussion in the United States, as existing reserves of natural gas coupled with horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing make exploitation of these reserves economically feasible. US energy portfolio has changed significantly due to this new development. The importance of natural gas is seen as likely to continue to expand over the coming years and is expected to increase even further with environmental considerations, such as greenhouse gas emissions. This chapter provides a background view of unconventional shale gas development across the United States.
