Rising energy prices and geopolitical instability could force more nations to explore shale gas reserves, leading to wider opportunities for fracking.

Curated by Motif Investing


Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, lets companies extract previously inaccessible oil and natural gas from shale rock formations deep within the earth - all at a relatively low cost. The technology has breathed new life into the natural gas industry, boosting production and driving down prices – even as environmental concerns mount. Natural gas could supply 25% of US energy needs by 2035. While still in its infancy overseas, fracking has the potential to be a global phenomenon. China, the world’s second largest energy consumer, has large shale gas reserves and is now moving quickly to deploy fracking to access them.

This motif contains stocks of companies that provide fracking technologies and services to oil and gas developers.
