Shale gas has the potential to change the landscape of North American supply in many ways over the coming years. It is also a tremendous resource with impressive productivity from the Barnett, Fayetteville, Woodford, Marcellus, Muskwa, Montney, and Haynesville shales.
However, there are many strategic challenges ahead, especially when considering the issues of geotechnical evaluation, drilling and completions techniques, logistical planning, and stakeholder concerns that must be addressed to ensure that shale gas realizes its great long-term potential.
The environmentally friendly natural gas market in North America is poised to be one of the great success stories of the oil and gas industry. This success has prompted the major oil and gas companies to participate in exploiting these resources. Their effort is spreading globally and there are serious indications of potential shale gas discoveries in Europe, Australia and elsewhere. Shale gas is going global!
