The Shale Gas Revolution: Implications for U.S. and Canadian Energy Policy and Asian Energy Security

Sep 06, 2012
North America is enjoying a greater wealth of energy resources, with new technology making it easier to extract natural gas from dense shale rock formations. This increase in supply has caused gas prices to plummet in the United States to approximately $3 per thousand cubic feet, compared to $16 per thousand cubic feet in Asia. With Asia struggling to meet its growing energy demand, countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan are looking toward North America to help diversify their energy imports. Many in the United States and Canada are interested in fulfilling Asia’s need for gas in order to help diversify trade and boost the economy. Others fear that liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports will hurt North America’s energy security and that LNG exports may raise domestic gas prices. NBR recently spoke with James Slutz, President and Managing Director of Global Energy Strategies LLC, to better understand this debate and the implications for U.S. energy and foreign policy.
