Summary:
This report investigates the ongoing shale boom in the United States and its implications for U.S. energy and national security. To date, the debate about the energy boom has been oversimplified. Some people argue that the boom will make the United States self-sufficient in energy, permitting the nation to retreat from its commitments overseas. Other analysts argue that nothing has changed and that the United States remains dangerously vulnerable to global energy-market dynamics. The reality is more complex: The energy boom will have profound implications on energy markets and political relationships between major consumers and producers. Furthermore, energy security will remain a key concern for U.S. foreign policy. These factors call for a reassessment of U.S. strategy to seize opportunities and manage challenges associated with maintaining energy security.
