There are more than 140,000 miles of track in the U.S., encompassing freight, short and passenger lines with around 70 percent of all goods traveling by rail at some point. This spider web-like rail line system crisscrosses the landscape, connecting cities, smaller communities, ports and a wide variety of industries.
Hydraulic fracturing is creating a positive impact on the United States economy, spurring job creation and investment in regions that both drill and export the oil and natural gas products produced. But will the shale boom in the U.S. have a lasting impact? According to predictions of some industry experts, not only will the impact last, but the benefits could pay huge economic dividends. Experts have predicted that U.S. drilling is on track to generate approximately $700 billion in the U.S. economy by 2020. The prediction, based from realistic assumptions, takes into consideration several opportunities that shale presents. The first is that increased oil and natural gas production will attract the petrochemical industry to a reliable and steady source of raw materials, creating new infrastructure investment and many skilled labor positions. The second is that as reserves of oil and natural gas continue to increase, exports will also become lucrative, spurring even more investment and job creation.
The recent shale gas boom in Pennsylvania has turned the region into one of the top producers of natural gas in the United States. Brazil is taking notice, paying particular attention as the South American country prepares to auction off drilling rights to its shale gas reserves. A delegation of Brazilian business representatives visited shale experts in Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania last week, gathering information on best practices to prepare the country to better handle its new natural resource while protecting the environment and benefiting Brazil’s economy. The discovery also has the opportunity to make Brazil - the largest economy in Latin America - more attractive to potential business investment by lowering the cost of energy.
When it comes to energy and policy, the state of Ohio has a long history of leadership. It even held title of energy capital of the nation in the late 1800s. Ohio is still leading the energy industry. Today, however, the state is making a name for itself in the renewable energy arena. Ohio is making a significant contribution to the national goals for renewable energy production. In a recent report released by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), Ohio is now among the top five states with the fastest growing wind generation capacity. The report shows that Ohio added 313 megawatts (MW) of wind capacity in 2012, outpacing many other traditional sources of energy production installed. And, there's the added potential of expanding another estimated 54,000 MW of wind capacity.
