“Things looked grim for America in 2006. Oil production was in steep decline and natural gas was hard to find. Major oil companies had just about given up on new discoveries on U.S. soil, and a new energy crisis seemed likely.
But a handful of men believed they could change everything. Far from the limelight, Aubrey McClendon, Harold Hamm, Mark Papa, and other wildcatters were determined to tap massive deposits of oil and gas that Exxon, Chevron, and other giants dismissed as a waste of time. Gregory Zuckerman, author of the bestseller "The Frackers: The Outrageous Inside Story of the New Billionaire Wildcatters", discusses how their energy revolution led to plunging energy prices while transforming the economy, geopolitics, the environment and more. He will address why a group of unlikely outsiders brought such change, how the energy resurgence will give the U.S. an economic advantage for years to come and where the industry is headed.”
