What Is Shale?

Shales are fine-grained sedimentary rocks, including sandstone and limestone, that are often rich resources of petroleum and natural gas. Sedimentary rocks are rocks formed by the accumulation of sediments at the Earth’s surface and within bodies of water.

Shale oil and gas formations are typically developed through hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and horizontal drilling.
