If it's not coal, oil, or natural gas, then what is it?

There has been a lot of back and forth about the possibility of exporting natural gas or crude oil from the U.S. Rather than focusing on the contentious items, let's focus on something we can export: our expertise. The U.S. energy renaissance has created a vast amount of new technology and techniques that can be used to optimize drilling for unconventional resources, extend the life of mature plays, and solve infrastructure and bottleneck issues. 

In this video, Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe looks at some of the companies who have led the way in developing these new techniques, and at a couple of countries that are either using these techniques today or are looking to do so in the future. With former oil exporters Brazil and Mexico in dire straits to increase production, these new ideas could help bring their national oil companies back to prominence.
