Fossil Fuels Transportation in the Northwest

The United States has the world’s largest proven deposit of coal reserves and shale formations. Improvement in drilling and fracking technology, less expensive electricity generated from gas and cleaner burning of shale gas have significantly decreased the US consumption of coal. However, the increasing demand for coal in China has made northwest ports an attractive gateway for US coal export to Asia.
