The phenomenon of Shale Oil and Shale Gas has been receiving a lot of press coverage lately, with mixed messages. On the one hand, it seems to have “come out of nowhere” recently and proponents claiming it’s the solution to our nation’s energy problems, a plentiful, inexpensive, domestic source of energy that can help North America reduce carbon emissions. On the other hand, detractors maintain that the process to extract it from the ground, called hydraulic fracturing, will destroy the environment and our groundwater resources, cause earthquakes, and harm our quality of life in a number of ways. We will separate the hype from reality in this 1.5 hour webinar, with the information that Economic Developers and others in the community need to know to prepare for the phenomenon.

The topics to be covered in this 1.5 hour webinar include:

  • What is Shale Oil and Gas?
