In recent years, North America has been viewed as a declining domain where domestically produced oil, natural gas and renewable energy would have difficulty keeping up with rising demand. Americans have voiced concerns about energy supply, pricing and security. However, the American energy industry is experiencing a renaissance in the global natural gas market — and oil could be next. This business boom, focused primarily on vast unconventional resources and driven by American ingenuity and technological innovation, portends a possible shift of the center of gravity in the energy world back to the Americas by the 2020s, away from the troubled Middle East, with extremely positive consequences for the U.S. economy and global position.
