The implications of shale resources stretch far beyond the energy industry, resonating along the entire energy value chain.  Shale has the potential to reshape the global economy, increasing energy security, independence, and affordability in the long term.  It is therefore critical for companies and policy-makers to consider the strategic implications of these changes now.
