What is shale gas?



  1. 0 Votes

    Shale gas is natural gas produced from shale.  Shale is a form of sedimentary rock made mostly of mud, mixed with fragments of other minerals such as quartz.  Shale is differentiated from other types of sedimentary rock by fissile cracks along the bedding.

    Shale gas has come to make up a larger and larger portion of US natural gas production.  The idea that shale gas could come to make up a majority of our natural gas has become increasingly popular.  As a result, shale gas has also become an increasingly popular topic of discussion.
