Recently, President Donald J. Trump joined Energy Industry Executives, members of Congress, and Cabinet Officials at the Department of Energy to deliver remarks on unleashing Americas boundless capacity for energy production. Were here today to usher in a new American energy policy, he declared. The President explained that his focus isnt so much on energy independence, but rather dominance. In fact, the program is being called American Energy Domination.

Drill Baby, Drill!
It is not only a matter of drilling for oil & gas but also installing processing facilities to treat the O&G.
The production output of fracking needs much less refining that that of a standard oil well, so existing refineries can handle "some" extra. When it is necessary, new refinery capacity will be added.
Trump sounds an awful like Reagan’s “WE win. They lose.”
Oil composition changes due to fracking? Which components are most affected and where does the difference end up in the material balance?
What will all this mean for Engineering and Construction (E&C)companies?
More work or less?
Research abiotic oil and gas. There are moons of Jupiter and Saturn with oceans of liquid methane and other hydrocarbons. I sincerely doubt that ancient dinosaurs and savanna morphed into oceans of hydrocarbons in outer space. We have only drilled a few short miles into the Earth. We keep finding more and more oil and gas. I thank God every day for Trump.
Well, not due to fracking....more like due to the types of rock structures that fracking taps. Fracking opens up paths in what are called "tight" rock formations (i.e. the pores in the rock are small). The heavier oil molecules move through the tight/small pores much more slowly than the lighter fractions. Pre-fracking methods could only tap "looser" types of rock formations (like sandstone), through which the heavy fraction moved about as easily as the "lights".
Soooo......what comes out of the well is "enriched" with lighter fractions, mostly C1-C5 with lesser amounts of larger molecules. Heavier stuff stays in the rock.
Less heavy stuff, less refining needed.
Best president in decades. Damn, I love this man.
Do you think behind the scenes some not so nice things were leaked to the Saudi’s, like their days of rolls Royce will end soon, if........
ANWR, dang blasted...drill!
Let’s eat some carribou steak sandwiches...
