  • The Impact of New American Energy on the U.S. and World

    John Manzella, The Impact of New American Energy on the U.S. and World

    SPECIAL REPORT—As the United States becomes an ever-greater energy producer, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and other relatively large energy producing countries will be negatively impacted. And with decreasing U.S. dependency on Middle Eastern oil, China, now the world’s largest consumer of energy, will become more influential there. But the biggest impact will be on the United States, which stands to significantly benefit in terms of economic growth, manufacturing output and corporate competitiveness.

    In 2013, the United States was the third largest global producer of crude oil after Russia and Saudi Arabia, and the world’s biggest overall producer of oil. The U.S. also was the world’s top producer of dry natural gas, followed by Russia, Canada and China.(1) As U.S. energy production increases, the impact will continue to be felt inside as well as outside the United States.

    Toward Energy Independence
    Several years ago, it was assumed that the United States would be importing increasingly larger volumes of petroleum and liquefied natural gas to make up for shortfalls in domestic production. However, with significantly greater energy output over the last few years, combined with greater automotive fuel efficiency, net energy imports (imports minus exports), which peaked in 2005, continue to decline. In fact, the net import share of total U.S. consumption has been falling — from 30 percent in 2005 to 16 percent in 2012 — and is projected to decline further to 4 percent in 2040.(2)
    In 2013, domestic energy production satisfied 84 percent of America’s energy needs and included natural gas, which represented 30 percent of U.S. energy output, followed by coal, at 24 percent, petroleum, at 24 percent, renewables, at 11 percent, and nuclear power, at 10 percent.(3) Moving forward, natural gas will become a greater and greater portion of domestically produced energy.
    The combined use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing has enabled American companies to exploit untouched domestic unconventional energy resources, such as shale gas, shale oil and tight oil, once considered too difficult to extract. In turn, due to improved recovery rates, assessments of these obtainable reserves have skyrocketed, even in already tapped fields.

    In fact, it is estimated that a Persian Gulf may lie beneath North Dakota and Montana.(4) And the Marcellus shale alone may hold 141 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves, an amount equal to estimated world consumption in the year 2024.(5)

    Technical developments in horizontal drilling allow vertical drilling systems to turn 90 degrees to steer in various directions well below the Earth’s surface to reach areas not easily accessible. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as hydrofracking or fracking, is a process that injects mostly water, some sand and chemical additives into the ground to create fissures in shale or other rock. In turn, shale gas is released and captured, while shale oil and tight oil seep back through the cracks and are extracted.
