Summary:
Over the past ten years, the US success in extracting gas from shale rock deep underground has transformed its energy landscape. Several countries in Europe, including France and Poland, are believed to have huge reserves too. American geologists initially said Poland could be sitting on enough gas to supply domestic need for 300 years, sparking a "gas rush". But only six wells have been hydraulically fractured so far and geologists fear their initial calculations may have been too optimistic.

Tax Break for UK Shale Industry

Reuters (July 19, 2013) The British government is hoping to create the world's most generous shale tax regime, slashing the tax on income on shale production from 62 percent to 30 percent. It's hoped the incentive will help lower energy bills by reducing the country's reliance on natural gas imports. As Kirsty Basset reports, the government is also insisting on benefits for affected communities to placate environmental concerns about fracking.

Keystone Completion, Pipeline Explosion Creating Energy Opportunities

TheStreet (Feb. 20, 2014) Capital spending on gathering, storage and pipeline shipping of natural gas is expected to reach $34.5 billion by 2022 compared with $18.9 billion this year, says Ed Deicke, Managing Partner at JHS Capital Advisors. The shift to natural gas manufacturing and vehicles will also have a positive impact on the US economy over the next ten years and is currently creating investment opportunities in the energy sector, says Deicke. Finally, lower gas prices due to the eventual completion of the Keystone Pipeline will give the economy and US consumer an added lift. Video provided by TheStreet
