Attorneys at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP have created an app providing helpful information on shale gas and hydraulic fracturing. It aggregates news from a variety of news sources as well as energy law specific publications such as the Energy Law Blog and FuelFix. Users can also select from approximately 50 countries to view news and a list of active oil and gas companies in that nation. The app also provides an interactive map of the United States, showing the location of a number of shale plays as well as news from each state. Finally, the app also provides a glossary of shale gas terms and a timeline showing the history of hydraulic fracturing.
The app is free and available for both Apple and Android devices.
