An Abundant Source of Natural Gas, Deep Beneath the Surface
Shale gas is natural gas found in an atypical geologic location. Trapped in extensive rock layers and found on every continent, shale gas has major implications for the replacement of the world’s gas reserves.
Lying 1,500 to 3,000 meters underground, shale gas is trapped in the very matrix of the rock in which it formed.
Abundant shale gas reserves can help to meet the planet’s rising demand for energy and secure energy independence for the countries that produce it.
