dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to provide an overview of shale gas development in the USA and to assess the implications of findings with regard to the prospects for shale gas development in the EU by 2020-2030. Particular emphasis is placed on the environmental and social aspects of market-scale extraction of shale gas. Any purely technological, techno-economic and regulatory aspects of shale gas exploitation are beyond the scope of this study. Other European Commission services, such as DG for Energy (ENER), DG for the Environment (ENV), DG for Climate Action (CLIMA), and the Joint Research Centre itself have already performed or are currently undertaking in-depth analyses of those aspects of shale gas. The analysis is based on a critical review of a number of literature sources, complemented by the authors’ analysis.en_GB
