Greening of Oil launches weekly shale report
Anchorage, Alaska - July 14, 2010 - Greening of Oil recently introduced a weekly report on shale gas by freelance energy journalist Eric Lidji.
The Anchorage-based international online publication said the Shale Report chronicles the environmental problems and technological solutions that arise as the United States attempts to develop its most rapidly expanding energy play: shale gas.
Over the past five years, technological advancements turned shale gas from a wild idea into a viable energy source that could upend many long held assumptions about supply, pricing and cleanliness of domestic energy. Shale gas, though, is coming of age in a period when good environmental stewardship is of major public concern, creating policy conflicts from small towns to the halls of Congress.
Each week on greeningofoil.com the Shale Report will explain those conflicts, as well as report on technical solutions being pursued by industry and government.
Lidji began writing about energy in 2006 for a variety of publications in Alaska, including Petroleum News, a sister publication of Greening of Oil. Currently, he reports from Pittsburgh in the heart of the Marcellus Shale. In 2010 he was the recipient of an Alaska Press Club award for an article explaining a looming crisis in the Alaska natural gas market.
