The bottom line
“The shale business has really changed the game not only in terms of the risk and the technology of the business, but also how you measure the business. It’s become much more of a manufacturingoriented business, and reserves are essentially looked at as almost inventory.” Bruce Bullock, director of Southern Methodist University’s Maguire Energy Institute “We would have expected economic recovery to have been stronger than it has been. That has clearly had a downward effect on natural gas prices in North America … These low domestic gas prices are having an effect on our unit profitability.” “Exxon has been investing in shale production in politically stable places, such as North America. But here at home, the company has run into low natural gas prices. Could exports be the answer?”
