Pushing Toward Energy Independence

The US is the top oil consumer in the world, using nearly 7 billion barrels per year[1] -- half of which is imported from geopolitically unstable regions of the Middle East. But new horizontal drilling practices, including fracking, have greatly expanded the ability of US producers to profitably recover crude from domestic shale reserves that are estimated at more than 33 billion barrels.[2] The Energy Information Administration projects US production of crude oil will jump to 7.5 million barrels a day in 2019 from 6.5 million barrels a day in 2012, primarily due to the increased output from shale plays.[3] With global demand for oil remaining high, and continued geopolitical uncertainty in other oil-rich regions, firms that explore and produce crude oil in US shale plays could benefit from richer valuations for their shale oil reserves and a more stable environment.
