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, ...

Unconventional Gas Market Study 2018

by Transparency Market Research  (Jul. 29, 2014)

The global gas sector still holds huge volumes of gas in the ground. Unconventional gas is abundantly available on every continent. The rise of unconventional gas production, especially the shale gas production has been a revolutionary change in the U.S. energy sector. It has the potential to transform the country’s requirement for global ...

Tapping the shale

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 1, 2014)

Growth in scientific knowledge seems to lead to an exacerbation in debate over politically sensitive issues rather than resolution?
