For years, the companies behind the U.S. oil and gas boom, including Noble Energy Inc. The shale oil industry, which uses a technique known as fracking, produces nearly four million barrels a day. But for many producers, it's no longer profitable when oil prices dip below $65 dollars a barrel. In the long run, fracking could speed up the rate at which oil prices climb. When natural oil supplies approach depletion, the scarcity forces prices higher. Fracking, by increasing the rate of extraction, expedites this eventuality. It is unlikely that the world will ever completely run out of oil. Falling Oil Prices Make Fracking Less Lucrative. Pumpjacks at the Inglewood oil fields in California in March. Some of the most controversial methods of oil extraction, like fracking, oil sands production and Arctic drilling, are also expensive.

The company produces around 13% of the world's oil, but its business operations have been notoriously opaque for decades. In March 2017, the Wall Street Journal ran an article with the headline, “Fracking 2.0: Shale Drillers Pioneer New Ways to Profit in Era of Cheap Oil,” which detailed the ways the shale industry expected technology could help it finally deliver profits.

Thus, conventional producers can afford to keep extracting and selling their oil at lower crude index prices than frackers. So why bother investing in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling? A high oil price offers an incentive to endeavor. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, opened up more natural gas for production, but the technology added costs to the oil extraction process. Shale oil costs more than conventional oil to extract, ranging from a cost-per-barrel of production from as low as $40 to over $90 a barrel. If oil prices keep falling, at some point it's not profitable to pull it out of the ground. But we're not there yet, according to an analysis of production costs by an energy consulting firm. In fact, even if the Brent price index falls another 20 percent from Friday's closing price—to $40
