And yet, the assessment of global strategic implications – for energy security, geopolitics, the global economy, or for the environment – is still trailing actual developments and perhaps unsurprisingly so, given the uncertainty around future production growth. The team has been investigating the impact of fracking on water resources water pressure and national security it has been estimated that global water withdrawal for energy production. The technological breakthrough in fracking, combined with directional drilling, has unleashed massive new supplies of shale oil and natural gas, cutting domestic and global energy prices dramatically, improving us energy security and slashing pollution by displacing coal-fired power generation.
The us energy information administration (eia) reported in september that crude oil exports are continuing to set records, mostly due to the fracking boom in the permian basin, in texas and new mexico june exports hit a record 22 million barrels per day, while the monthly average was up almost 80 percent for the first half of this year compared to the same period last year.

Recent events in eastern europe underline the potential impact on countries highly dependent on russian gas, and the importance that all governments ensure continued security of their energy supplies. Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling are safely unlocking vast us reserves of oil and natural gas found in shale and other tight-rock formations developing energy from shale is an advanced process that uses the latest drilling technologies and equipment as for what fracking means to the united states – the answers are security, economic growth and jobs, jobs, jobs. After the united states chamber of commerce released the fourth installment of its institute for 21 st century energy’s energy accountability series (energy 21), which looked at the economic effects of a national fracking ban and found it wouldn’t be pretty, activists flew into a panic. The biggest innovation in energy so far this century has been the development of shale gas and the closely associated resource known as “tight oil” indeed, the emergence of shale gas and tight oil in the us demonstrates, once again, how innovation can change the balance of global economic and political power.
The united states is the biggest energy consumer in the world, accentuating its energy security priorities in twenty-first century geopolitics. Security (timely investments to supply energy in line with economic and environmental needs) hydraulic fracturing (fracking): injection of water, sand and chemicals at high pressure into an underground rock formation, in order to break up the rock and extract gas or oil. The volume of water used per energy generated — known as its water intensity — is lower for fracking than other fossil fuels and nuclear: coal, nuclear and oil extraction use approximately two, three and ten times, respectively, as much water as fracking per energy unit, and corn ethanol can use 1,000 times more if the plants are irrigated.
The amount of gas likely to be produced from any fracking boom is not going to outweigh the effect of global markets for oil and liquefied natural gas, which the uk imports from qatar and elsewhere.
