by Grand View Research  (Oct. 14, 2014)

The global hydraulic fracturing market is expected to reach USD 90.55 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Regulatory support in the form of tax benefits and financial incentives, particularly in North America and Asia Pacific is expected to drive the global hydraulic fracturing market over the next six years. ...

Does shale gas mean cheap gas?

by ENER-G  (Sep. 11, 2014)

What is the true impact of shale gas extraction in the UK? Swathes of the British population are against fracking (the process of releasing natural gas trapped within shale rock formations) due to its perceived visual impact and environmental concerns. Two out of three of the main political parties apparently support further exploration and ...

Global Shale Gas Development: Water Availability & Business Risks

by World Resources Institute WRI  (Sep. 9, 2014)

This report analyzes water availability across all potentially commercial shale resources worldwide.It also reveals that water availability could limit shale resource development on every continent except Antarctica. Shale resources are unevenly distributed worldwide and, for the most part, not located where freshwater is abundant. For example, ...

Development and application of type curves for pressure transient analysis of horizontal wells in shale gas reservoirs

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 19, 2014)

Even though significant progresses have been made in the past few years, there appears to be a lack of information regarding the characterisation of shale gas formations. A major purpose of this study is to demonstrate impacts of horizontal well geometries and gas flow parameters as well as shale gas reservoir system on horizontal well production ...

Global Shale Gas Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2014 to 2020 : Grand View Research, Inc

by Grand View Research  (Mar. 18, 2014)

The global market for shale gas is expected to reach USD 67.02 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Depleting conventional energy reserves across the globe has prompted the industry to shift focus towards developing alternative energy sources which is expected to remain a key driving factor for shale gas demand ...

A shale gas revolution?

by MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology  (Jan. 3, 2012)

MIT report shows prosperous shale gas market could hurt future R&D, if we let it. By Vicki Ekstrom, Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, MIT Shale gas - a resource that has grown significantly in just the last few years to one-quarter of the domestic gas supply - is cheaper and involves fewer emissions than ...

Water reclamation from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid using a novel forward osmosis–vacuum membrane distillation hybrid system

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 13, 2014)

This study examined the performance of a novel hybrid system of forward osmosis (FO) combined with vacuum membrane distillation (VMD) for reclaiming water from shale gas drilling flow-back fluid (SGDF). In the hybrid FO-VMD system, water permeated through the FO membrane into a draw solution reservoir, and the VMD process was used for draw ...

Shale gas - Information on hydraulic fracturing (`fracking`)

by IWA Publishing  (Jun. 13, 2013)

Shale gas is natural gas – mainly methane – trapped within the micropores of shale formations or adsorbed onto the shale (sedimentary rock). In Europe, known deposits exist in the UK, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, the Baltic States and Scandinavia. In Switzerland, deposits are suspected to lie in the Permo-Carboniferous ...
