The surge in gas production in the last 5 years has been largely triggered by the adoption of new drilling techniques, which have allowed oil and gas producers to profitably tap into giant oil and gas deposits previously locked away in shale rock formations.
Developing the nation’s shale fields will boost U.S. oil output significantly in the next decade. In 2005, shale oil and condensate production totaled less than 1 percent of total oil production in the US. By 2020, shale oil is predicted to account for as much as 30 percent of total US oil output.
The influx of large quantities of natural gas from shale deposits has already created ample opportunities as well as challenges. While consumers have, so far, have benefitted from record-low natural gas prices, most investment analysts are at odds over how depressed natural gas prices will impact future energy trends.
“Shale gas is absolutely essential to U.S. energy independence and will be a prominent source of economic growth in coming years. However, investors will need to be cautious because not all asset classes will benefit from surging shale gas supplies” said Elliott Gue, editor of The Energy Strategist and author of Profit from the Shale Gas Revolution: A Complete Investor’s Guide – a special investment advisory report available for free on InvestingDaily.com.
“Despite the economic potential of U.S. shale fields, most investors don’t fully recognize the enormity of the nation’s competitive advantage when it comes to energy. A sustained period of cheap and easily accessible energy will prove a major advantage for various American industries” added Elliott Gue.
Mr. Gue’s special report details the dynamics of the shale oil and gas industry in the United States in four chapters. The first chapter of the report explains the two technological breakthroughs that have made large shale gas deposits economically feasible to develop. The second chapter reveals the four most significant shale formations in the United States and illustrates their economic potential. The third part of the report forecasts four economic trends that will take place as a result of increased activity in shale gas production. The fourth chapter outlines the steps investors can take to capitalize on the booming shale gas industry.
“We believe that innovations in the shale gas industry will have substantial implications on the American economy in the next decade. Given the sizable opportunity these innovations present, I was surprised to learn how little individual investors understood this sector” said the report author.
“I wanted to educate the investment public about the macroeconomic conditions driving this rapidly growing market, but also wanted to give them actionable advice that they could profit from, which is why I created this free guide” concluded Elliott Gue.
