Over the past few years the natural gas, oil, and liquids markets have been transformed and revitalized by extraction innovations such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Deposits of gas and oil that were once cost prohibitive or difficult to access, have now become cost-effective and are already having a profound effect on energy markets around the globe. The United States and Canada are at the center of this revolution and the map presents a holistic view of an industry that profoundly altered our energy landscape.


Now in its second edition, the Platts North American Shale Plays 2013 wall map presents even more shale plays in this definitive resource utilizing expertise from Gas Daily editors and Bentek analysts. With over eighty different shale plays (many not displayed elsewhere), shale basins, hundreds of thousands of miles of crude and interstate gas pipelines, gas processing plants, LNG facilities and protected federal lands, this map will help you understand areas of potential exploration as well as existing infrastructure.
