Break-even costs for shale gas continue to decline. Hydraulic fracturing techniques are improving and in some plays refracturing is also further lowering costs. Also service costs are falling due to the downturn in oil prices. Cheaper shale gas will support over 19 bcfd (196 bcm) of LNG and 7.3 bcfd (75 bcm) piped exports to Mexico by 2035. Environmental regulations as well as lower costs are increasing gas use for power generation. Furthermore, substantial amount of industrial capacity on the US Gulf Coast is being developed to take advantage of relatively cheap gas.
