Shale gas is found within the shale formations. Shale gas is also known as schist gas or parent rock gas. Shales are sedimentary rocks that are fine-grained and are rich sources of petroleum and natural gas. Shale gas is a vital source of natural gas in the United States. Different methods are used for the extraction of the gas from the shales. The most common methods used for extraction is hydraulic fracturing. This is banned in many countries because it poses risks for the environment. Shale gas is often used to describe both tight gas and shale gas resources. The main difference between tight gas and shale gas, however, is that tight gas can be found in low permeability sedimentary rocks, such as sandstones, while shale gas rocks are usually impermeable.


The global shale gas market is growing at a significant pace owing to driving factors such as improving supply and distribution infrastructure, as well as improvements in drilling technology of shale gas exploration. Moreover, the abundance of shale gas resources across the globe coupled with declining natural gas prices are the major factors boosting the shale gas market growth. However, high initial investment and negative environmental impact are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period. Likewise, shale gas is likely to boost NGL & ethylene production which provides a developing opportunity for the market players. New shale gas reserves identified in Europe & APAC delivers a high potential for the overall market growth.
