Shale energy could revitalize U.S. manufacturing, report says

By Jim Mackinnon Published: October 10, 2012

The EnergyTomorrow Blog takes a look at a PwC report that says U.S. shale energy could revitalize manufacturing as well as the chemicals industry.

The blog says:

"This is a significant forecast. PwC says low-cost chemicals derived from affordable, abundant natural gas from shale could return jobs to the U.S. manufacturing sector and over the longer term, help revive the entire sector. The finding is consistent with last year's PwC report that estimated 1 million manufacturing jobs could be created by 2025 because of shale gas and that manufacturers could lower their raw materials and energy costs by as much as $11.6 billion annually.

"The good news is that this is just part of the impact of the energy revolution that’s ongoing in this country, in large part because of abundant shale resources, hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling."
