Webinar — Shale’s Future: Replay or Swan Song?

U.S. shale producers have been hit hard by the collapse in oil prices. This has happened before, yet they bounced back spectacularly, making the U.S. the world’s leading oil and natural gas producer and a natural gas exporter, as well as helping to achieve oil self-sufficiency for the first time in 70 years. What are the prospects for another comeback? What are the hidden strengths of the U.S. shale sector? And what weaknesses might mean “this time is different?” At this webinar, a panel of experts from the Center for Energy Studies and Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. explored the future of the U.S. shale patch and what it means for the global oil market.
