Hydraulic fracturing in the US... continued

Hydraulic fracturing in the US... continued

INSTRUCTIONS:
this is a carry on from the proposal piece requested #00022346. I need the paper completed in 30 days, but I need the introduction piece done within 10 days. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the subject of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. The paper will investigate how the process of hydraulic fracturing has allowed once uneconomical reserves to be produced economically. The paper will also look at the overall impact that is a result of the production of these reserves in the United States. I will focus on three core areas, 1. Environment 2. Politics 3. Media vs. the oil and gas industry. The paper will show the how the unconventional gas revolution is changing the US economy, its future energy security and the impact it is having directly and indirectly to its current energy suppliers. The paper will also look at the impact that the US energy industry is having aboard as well. The benefits of the paper is to enlighten the reader on the process of hydraulic fracturing while at the same highlighting the issues and benefits that is a direct result of the hydraulic fracturing process in the United States. It will show that the hydraulic fracturing process will allow the United States to become an energy export rather than a net importer. The next piece will be the 35-40 page paper after the proposal. I want to incorporate the media piece from previous paper and then add on the other topics so it allows you to have the paper 1/3 to 1/2 done (#21551). The interview pieces i will look after so just subject matter will be need. thanks as always. the second piece will be 30 days plus for completion once the proposal is in. I also need the highlight the impact that hydraulic fracturing in shale gas reserves and how it is shifting the dynamic of world markets. The US may soon be able to sell their energy rather then import causing a shift in the supply and demand affecting global markets. What possible impact that this may have. I want to work with the writer throughout to ensure we are both on the same page so would like to if possible review the drafts as me move forward.

Hydraulic Fracturing in the United StatesStudent:Professor:Course title:Date:Hydraulic Fracturing in the United States1.0 Purpose and scope of the studyThe purpose of this paper is to analyze the subject of hydraulic fracturing (HF) in the United States. This technology is also known as fracking. The paper will investigate how the process of hydraulic fracturing has allowed once uneconomical reserves to be produced economically. The paper will also look at the overall impact that is a result of the production of these reserves in the United States. The three core areas that will be focused on are (i) environment; (ii) politics; and (iii) media vs. the oil and gas industry. The paper will show how the unconventional gas revolution is changing the United States economy, its future energy security and the impact it is having directly and indirectly to its current energy suppliers. The paper will also look at the impact that the United States energy industry is having abroad.2.0 Introduction2.1 Problem descriptionValko & Economides (2005) stated that hydraulic fracturing refers to a process which can enhance the flow of gas or oil from a well. This procedure is typically carried out by pumping liquids down a well and into underground rock units under extremely high pressures that fracture the rock. Usually, the objective is to form a network of fractures that are interconnected, which will serve as pore spaces for the movement of natural gas and oil to the well bore. Hydraulic fracturing technology along with horizontal drilling technique has transformed shales that were previously not productive into the biggest natural gas fields in the globe. In the United States, the process of hydraulic fracturing is used in 9 out of ten natural gas wells, where millions of gallons of chemicals, water and sand are pumped into the ground in order to break apart the rocks to release gas. Concerns have been raised by scientists that chemicals which are used to fracture rocks could create a threat not just underground, but also when the waste fluids are mishandled and spilled out on the surface (Yew, 2007). Even though the extraction of natural gas from unconventional sources happens to be more expensive and complex compared to conventional gas production, improvements in technology have made recovery from unconventional sources to be more viable from the economic perspective in the past five years. Particularly, the combination of HF and horizontal drilling has to a large extent enhanced the productivity of natural gas wells (Cooley & Donnelly, 2012). Therefore, the research problem is: How has the process of hydraulic fracturing allowed once uneconomical reserves to be produced economically, and what is the overall impact that is a result of the production of these reserves in the United States?2.2 Why this research study is appropriate This research study is appropriate primarily because it will enlighten the reader on the process of hydraulic fracturing while a...
