    Oil Shale Research in the United States 5 September Third Edition FOREWORD Significant research efforts continue in the United States to address some of the technical, economic, and policy uncertainties that constrain the development of America’s enormous oil shale resource. Enefit American Oil (former name: Oil Shale Exploration Company - OSEC) is a Utah based oil shale exploration and development company. It has been involved in the development of oil shale since Since it is a subsidiary of Eesti Energia, internationally known as arters: Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. Shale gas was first extracted as a resource in Fredonia, New York, in , in shallow, low-pressure fractures. Horizontal drilling began in the s, and in a well was first fracked in the U.S.. Federal price controls on natural gas led to shortages in the s. Faced with declining natural gas production, the federal government invested in many supply alternatives, including the.
