HOUSTON, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the shale energy boom taking place in the United States and around the world, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP announced today it has launched the ShalePlay app. Powered by the firm's energy law and environmental law attorneys and government relations professionals, the ShalePlay app is the first of its kind, offering a comprehensive resource on news and information related to shale gas and hydraulic fracturing, including the latest industry trends and updates.
With oil and gas production near record levels as a result of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking"), a drilling technique that frees trapped hydrocarbons by injecting water, sand and chemicals into shale rock, this free app will prove vital to companies and individuals interested in keeping up to date with developments in the sector.
"We created this app to offer our clients, and others in the industry, the latest news and information on oil and gas production in shale plays, providing a one-stop-shop for shale related content," said Paul Grabowski, chief marketing officer, Bracewell & Giuliani.
The ShalePlay app includes:
- News aggregated from a variety of key sources
- Shale studies
- Interactive map of shale plays
- Glossary of common terms
- Historical timeline of hydraulic fracturing
- Analysis from Bracewell & Giuliani attorneys
The app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. An Android version will be available in the first half of 2014.
The firm's attorneys also generate the Energy Legal Blog® for updates and analysis on national and global energy issues.
