Listen: Slickwater fracking: A spark to start the world's modern oil revolution

Capitol Crude is back from summer vacation and taking a trip back to the mid-1990s in the US, when Hanson was on the radio, Seinfeld had new episodes and slickwater fracking was being developed. Nick Steinsberger revolutionized the production of oil from shale and unintentionally set in motion the US' modern energy renaissance.

Senior oil editors Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon chronicle Steinsberger's work, from being a young engineer in Texas to being an innovator whose ideas are used worldwide. Steinsberger describes his path to being a pioneer and what the future holds for this method of fracking.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editor at
