  • Description
  • Regional Coverage: Canada, United States


    2016 saw a decline in the production of shale oil and gas as oil and gas prices fell to an all-time low. However, as prices have rebounded in 2017, the production of shale oil and gas has increased in the United States and is expected to grow further in the future. In the long term, U.S. shale oil and shale production is expected to double by 2035 and 2040, respectively. As a result, the consumption of chemical additives used in developing these fields is set to grow. Crude oil price volatility, environmental concerns and associated regulations, and technical requirements are only some of the factors affecting the consumption of these chemicals. This report intends to provide the key to understanding this fast-paced market and the opportunities it creates for chemicals suppliers.
