Story: Can Europe join the Shale Gas Revolution?

Last March, the European Commission launched a Green Paper with the 2030 goals for Energy and Climate. At the time, Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger said: “I am in favour of producing shale gas, particularly for safety reasons, and to reduce gas prices.” And he added. “In the United States, which is a big producer of shale gas, the price of gas is four times less than in Europe.”

Later this year, the European Commission aims to table a proposal on shale gas that can either be a separate piece of legislation or amendments to the existing one. Leading Environment journalist, Sonja van Renssen provides a Story on the future of an EU Shale Gas Policy, with an overview of how the US is conducting its own shale gas policy.
