The world is in the midst of a boom in drilling, as companies rush to tap a vast underground reservoir of cheap gas that is plentiful, cheap and cheap to drill.
But it also has a growing number of safety concerns and public opposition.
A few years ago, scientists found that the fracking technique known as “tam rock” caused the contamination of a small, remote stretch of the Susquehanna River in western Pennsylvania.
That contamination resulted in the deaths of at least six people and led to the closure of the river’s pumping station.
In 2014, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection found the Susquhanna basin to be contaminated with a carcinogen known as benzene.
The state is working on a plan to clean up the Susq.
area, but the process has so far taken a decade and cost more than $40 billion.
TAM ROCK: The new method of drilling involves drilling deep underground where the water is bubbling and the pressure can’t be felt.
The gas is pumped through a pipe and out a hole called a borehole.
The water that comes out of the hole can then be used to fill the hole with water, but that water is then flushed through a filter and collected.
It is a more efficient method than simply blasting water down a wellhead.
It uses a lot less energy.
When you put it all together, that’s more energy, and it’s cheaper, too.
Scientists have known for a while that it is possible to produce shale gas through fracking.
But until recently, it had been difficult to produce enough shale to fill nearly half the wells drilled in the U.S. in the last decade, according to the University of Texas at Austin.
In the last two decades, the fracking boom has been a boon for many oil and gas companies.
But now there are signs that the technology may be going into overdrive.
In the past year, the amount of oil and natural gas produced in the United States has risen by more than 20 percent, according the American Petroleum Institute.
The rise has been fueled in part by the U and Chinese oil and coal producers, which have increasingly pushed fracking to the fringes of the oil patch.
Many of these companies are now seeking to increase their profits by drilling more deep in shale.
But others, such as ExxonMobil, are trying to expand production and reduce their environmental footprint by drilling in the more expensive part of the country, such the Appalachia.
The American Petroleum Association has been calling for the industry to move its operations to the more environmentally friendly parts of the U, arguing that it will be cheaper to do so.
ExxonMobil’s CEO has said that he sees shale gas as “one of the great opportunities of our lifetimes.”
There is some debate about whether shale gas can be economically viable in the Appalachias.
Some experts say that it’s impossible to extract the gas cheaply enough to meet demand for natural gas, but some also say that the region’s relatively high costs make it economically untenable for the oil and mining companies to expand.
“We don’t have to go down to the surface to get the gas,” said Tom Sowell, an analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council.
“The cost is just too great.
And we don’t know where to get it.
We don’t even know how to produce it.”
But some analysts argue that the US. could be a better place to extract shale gas than most other countries.
There are some promising signs that this is changing.
The number of wells being drilled in Appalachia is rising rapidly, and more and more companies are moving to expand their operations.
And the number of fracking rigs operating in Appalachias has increased, too, even though it has been slower in some places than others.
But a lot more needs to be done.
What is the shale gas industry?
While shale gas is an emerging technology, it is not the only one.
Oil and gas drilling in Appalachians began in the mid-20th century.
The first wells were drilled in 1930.
Today, there are more than 200 oil and related companies operating in the region, according.
But the industry has grown to include the largest natural gas producers in the country.
According to the American Energy Alliance, there is nearly $1 trillion in energy-related assets in the continental U., and the American Oil & Gas Association says that shale gas could play a role in that figure.
One of the most important aspects of the shale-gas industry is that it has diversified its energy sources.
The companies that are active in this sector include BP, ExxonMobil and Marathon Petroleum.
The U.K. also is one of the largest shale producers, producing about a third of its gas and oil in the basin.
Other countries are also exploring shale gas.
In some places, such like Texas, the companies are also developing new energy technologies. This isn
