Key Findings: 

  • An abundance of shale oil formations in the United States and Canada, combined with the latest technology to release them, has fostered growth in this sector in North America over the past decade
  • Reservoirs that have very low permeability are the ones with an abundance of shale oil. Its extraction can only be accomplished with the use of unconventional methods as this oil cannot flow easily to the surface
  • Hydraulic fracking has been a critical technique employed. Fracking fluid is primarily composed of water, along with other thickening agents, and is used to create cracks in shale rocks. This then allow the release of natural gas, petroleum, and other by-products through these open fissures

The United States has a number of shale basins, of which the author has identified some key basins where wastewater treatment is a need.
