In the past, the oil and gas industry considered gas locked in tight, impermeable shale uneconomical to produce. However, advances in directional well drilling and reservoir stimulation have dramatically increased gas production from unconventional shales. There may be as much as 200 trillion cubic feet of natural gas technically recoverable from these shales. There is an expectation that the demand for natural gas will increase. Developing these shales comes with some controversy. Contents of this report: (1) Background; (2) Unconventional Gas Shale Resources in the U.S.; (3) Drilling and Dev

Companies that develop and produce oil and gas from fed. lands and waters are required to report their production volumes and other data to the Minerals Mgmt. Service (MMS) and to pay royalties either in value (cash) or in kind (oil or gas). In FY 2008, MMS estimated that it had collected more than $2.4 billion in royalty-in-kind (RIK) gas. It is important that MMS ensure that it receives the RIK gas to which it is entitled. The difference between the RIK gas owed -- MMS's entitled percentage of gas -- and the percentage it actually receives is referred to as a "gas imbalance." This report eva

In FY 2008, the Dept. of the Interior collected over $22 billion in royalties and other fees related to oil and gas. Within Interior, the Bureau of Land Mgmt. manages onshore fed. oil and gas leases, and the Minerals Mgmt. Serviceżs (MMS) manages offshore leases. A fed. lease gives the lessee rights to explore for and develop the leaseżs oil and gas resources. MMS is responsible for collecting royalties for oil and gas produced from both onshore and offshore leases. This report focus on Interiorżs: (1) policies for oil and gas leasing; (2) oversight of oil and gas production; (3) royalty re
