Event Description/Presentation Abstract: The Impact of U.S. Shale Resources on Global Energy


The global energy mix has been transitioning away from the foundational energies of oil as feedstock for transportation fuels and coal as fuel for electricity generation. Until recently, the U.S. energy portfolio was facing a less certain supply and price future, but shale resource have impacted that significantly. Rapid acceleration of shale-gas production led to a collapse in natural-gas prices and a reduction in natural-gas drilling activity. Shale oil production followed a few years later, leading OPEC to respond with increased production to maintain market share. Global oil price collapsed along with US rigs drilling for shale oil. Shale oil and shale gas now account for 50% of U.S. oil and natural gas production. Will the world follow? Legitimate concerns include size of the resource, recoverable reserves, economic production potential, and environmental risk.
