Infographic Published on August 15, 2019

Recent advances such as hydraulic fracturing, horizontal drilling, as well as new discoveries, increased exports, and infrastructure improvements will lead to less volatility, larger scale drilling programs, increased cycle times, and a larger permanent workforce and population.
