    1637 Words  | 7 Pages

    Fracturing Shale Marcellus Shale, also known, as the Marcellus Formation, is black, organically rich, shale that exists underneath the surface of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, Tennessee, and Virginia. The shale is located roughly one mile below the surface of these states and has an estimated 141 trillion cubic feet of attainable natural gas. As of 2015, Marcellus shale gas wells were reportedly yielding 14.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (“Marcellus

  • A Brief Note On Shale Gas And Natural Gas

    1745 Words  | 7 Pages

    Shale gas is a natural gas that can be extracted from the fabric of shale rocks by means of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. There is controversy surrounding this extraction process, as in the process of building facilities in which gases are extracted, people are made aware of the hazards that are involved both with building the site of extraction and with extracting the gas itself. This essay aims to assess the extent to which these hazards can affect those residing in Lancashire. Throughout

    forums which concern in the diminishing of fossil fuel and natural gas. Consequently, the US government has attempted to seek a new resource to serve the global energy demand (SHAFIEE, 2009). The natural gas from shale formation, abundant resources in US, has been discovered for a long time but there is no efficient method to extract the natural gas from this formation. Moreover, the route to convey the large amount of shale gas is one of our challenge that must be safe for human and environment

  • Extracting Natural Gas From Shale And Other Rock Formation

    the ability of extracting natural gas from shale and other rock formation. The popularity of hydraulic fracturing remains leading in the direction of new venture opportunities and increasing growth for the natural gas and oil production industry. With the development, comes risk and scrutiny. According to Robert W. Howarth and Anthony Ingraffea natural gas extracted from shale comes at too great a cost to the environment, and must be illegal. Natural gas from shale remains vastly proposed as clean

  • Shale Gas Good for America

    964 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction Shale gas is a natural gas that is found deep in the earth’s crust. This type of natural gas usually forms in shale deposits and can be released with a drilling technique known as fracking. Shale gas has become the most important source of natural gas in the United States. Scientist and researchers have always known of shale gas, but none have had the technologies to reach it till now. In early 2000, shale gas compensated for one percent of the United States supply of natural gas resources

  • Shale Gas Of Ammonium And Ethylene

    Shale Gas to Ammonium and Ethylene Nikita Cardenas, Lucas Freiberg, James Watkins, Heitor Almeida Rogerio RA2 Main Goals: We are interested in using our shale gas stream, which we currently sell as heating fuel, to create another product of value. We are considering taking the shale gas and producing anhydrous ammonia, urea, ammonia sulfate, and ethylene. The main goal is to make a greater profit from our shale gas by selling it as more valuable products rather than

  • Oil And Natural Gas : Why Black Shales Can Be Hosts Of A Significant Amount Of Uranium

    1074 Words  | 5 Pages

    6. URANIUM IN MUDROCKS - BLACK SHALES It has been broadly recognized that black shales can be hosts of a significant amount of Uranium when compared to other sedimentary rocks (Swanson, 1961). The black shales are very attractive because these typically contain good quantities of organic matter, and therefore, are potential stratigraphic intervals for source of hydrocarbons (Peters and Cassa, 1994). The generated hydrocarbons (oil and natural gas) from these shales are derived directly from the thermal

    presents an initial argument regarding the presently booming economy of shale gas extraction within the United Kingdom. The extraction of shale gas, as it has been in the United States, has not been without its due challenges. Hence, it is imperative to consider the views of the government regarding this arising economy change. Moreover, in this paper, the regulatory framework present to maintain and control the extraction of shale gas and all of its supplementary practices has been presented in this paper
