“Fracking” for Shale Oil and Gas, Banking on Positive Returns

In the September 2010 issue of Construction Headline News, hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” took center stage as new advancements in the method have led the way for easier access to extensive oil and gas deposits in shale fields around the world.

From the Marcellus Shale developments in the United States, to prospects in Canada, Europe, and Asia, this energy revolution has fueled a global push for further exploration and investments. Even small towns in Texas and Colorado are seeing drilling booms as this unconventional resource could mean a cleaner, more cost-effective way to secure global energy independence.

September’s issue also provides links to current articles in construction litigation, construction delays, construction opportunities, construction defects, construction economics and engineering innovations.
