An energy game-changer?

Louisiana shale could change fate of U.S. energy supply


The gas found in the area’s Haynesville shale and in other shale formations throughout the country has changed the nation’s energy outlook in just a few short years.

Some see abundant North American natural gas as the gateway to reduced dependence on foreign oil and a bridge toward carbon-free energy sources since gas is the lowest-emission fossil fuel.

Others say the surge in next-generation gas production isn’t paying off as promised and threatens local water supplies.

Some even see it as another speculative bubble, driven by hype that will never deliver the fuel it promises.
