Background to this shale gas market research
Shale gas – a “game changer”
NRG Expert’s shale gas market research report reveals that shale gas has been a ‘game changer’ in the US changing the country from being reliant on imports for the foreseeable future to being able to meet demand from domestic production. A large reduction in the cost to produce natural gas from shale gas made shale gas economically viable. So presently US natural gas prices are around USD 4 per mmBtu. Whether shale gas can maintain its meteoric rise is uncertain. Low shale gas prices have made the economics of shale gas projects less attractive and are expected to remain bearish in the short-term. Furthermore, there is concern over the environmental impact of fracturing water and the amount of water used in the fracturing process. New environmental legislation on hydraulic fracturing, if passed, could drive the costs of hydraulic fracturing higher, possibly leaving only the big players in the shale game.
High Oil Prices
Our shale gas analysis reveals that despite the uncertainty, interest in shale gas has not waned. High oil prices are starting to make compressed natural gas vehicles more of a viable option. Furthermore, natural gas produces less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on burning than coal, which will have positive impacts on the global shale gas market. It is forecast that fuel switching from coal to natural gas (at power stations) is one option for country’s to meet Kyoto targets for cutting CO2 emissions.
