The U.S. is facing a new era in natural gas. This is a golden opportunity to reverse the dependency on foreign oil. In a few years, the country will exceed Russia and Saudi Arabia, and become the biggest gas producer in the world. This expansion in the global market is due to the shale gas – a new, abundant, cheap and national resource.
The challenge of natural gas in the U.S. is not only the production, but the development of infrastructure needed to supply the market. In the future, the U.S. will feature more domestic heating with natural gas, more industries producing goods thanks to natural gas, more electricity generated by natural gas and more vehicles fueled with natural gas.
