• Even if a ban succeeded, capital would flow from federal to private lands. “Even in the long-term, the impact might be quite negligible as seen from the greater industry perspective,” says Artem Abramov, Head of Shale Research at Rystad Energy. “However, the effects of such a ban could have stronger negative effects on one key shale producing region in particular – the New Mexico portion of the prolific Permian Delaware Basin.”

    Fracking decrease already going on with low oil & gas prices in USA etc.in world 2017 still 3.9% gas burned away.
    Recommended is very quick gas consumption increase with new 1000bar 2t 2.4m CNG pebble tank system quickly worldwide usable 5 connected like 40' ISO container for heat & electricity, 700bar cars & trucks
    etc. if LNG terminal build filled there.
    CNG never going out because easy makable out of electrolyse H2 + CO2.
