The term is fracturing or fracking. See link below
It won't be long and you will be seeing production from it.
In simple terms, the drilling that has taken place thus far has been to a designated "vertical" depth. They are now going to drill "horizontally" through the "shale" to "fracture" its layers and, hopefully, bring out oil and/or gas.
