(OilPrice) Hydraulic fracking has been studied with a published paper showing the energy return on investment (aka EROI) with a total input energy compared with the energy in natural gas expected to be made available to end users is similar to or better than coal.

The news for the natural gas industry, consumers and landowners lucky enough to get a well on their land is tremendously helpful. It’s also a huge and crushing disappointment for the anti fracking crowd. Hydraulic fracturing pays off in a very big way.
