Fracking will never be the same again With fracking seeing a lull in new oil being produced new fracking technology can take a leap into production! This new fracking technology is a little known ball called a dissolvable frac ball. See what all the hypes about here @ http://dissolvalloy.com/frac-balls/ #fracking
Free ASME webinar focuses on liquefied natural gas ASME will offer a free webinar, "Liquefied Natural Gas: Delivering on the Promise of the Shale Gas Boom," on Thursday, June 5, at 2 p.m. ET. The webinar, part of ASME's Energy Forum multimedia program, will feature George Hu, LNG technology manager at Technip USA, and Justin Capouch, LNG technology manager at CB&I.

Energy From Shale: How It Works. Shale gas is natural gas trapped in hard, dense layers of sedimentary rock. The technology to tap into these deposits - known as fracking - is a combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing developed over decades.
