How The US Shale Industry May Fall Apart


After the big boom, we may be about to see the big fall: Goldman Sachs has built a scheme to understand which shale companies may fall apart before everyone else

The “Group #4″ is not in a great situation at the moment. If banks will really start to deny loans renewal to most of these companies, we may see a sharp decline in the whole industry.
