Shale oil and shale gas resources are globally abundant
Estimated shale oil and shale gas resources in the United States and in 137
shale formations in 41 other countries represent 10% of the world’s crude oil
and 32% of the world’s natural gas technically recoverable resources, or those
that can be produced using current technology without reference to economic
profitability, according to a new EIA-sponsored study (see Table 1)
released today (June 10, 2013).
