The promising future of shale gas production in the U.S.
Posted on Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 at 6:18 pm
In 2011, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) stated that the country produced 23 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, which accounts for 95% of the nation’s overall natural gas consumption. In 2040, the EIA hopes that the U.S. produces 33.1 million cu. ft. of natural gas, a 44% increase in the country’s overall natural gas production.
The projected increase in the country’s natural gas production is primarily caused by booming shale gas production. Shale is a type of sedimentary rock rich in natural gas and petroleum. Furthermore, this rock formation is very common in many parts of the country, including Texas.
