ABSTRACT
The article discusses the adverse impact of falling oil prices on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) projects in the U.S. Topics covered include the decline in number of rigs drilling for oil and fracking service providers, selective and strategic approach adopted by mid-tier and smaller companies, and the decision of oil companies like Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil to end fracking projects abroad due to poor exploration results, environmentalists' protests, and costly shale drilling.
