Gas Shales in Europe, 2012 - Market Analysis, Industry Development and Competitive Landscape
Gas Shales in Europe, 2012 - Market Analysis, Industry Development and Competitive Landscape

Summary

“Gas Shales in Europe, 2012 - Market Analysis, Industry Development and Competitive Landscape”, is the latest report from industry analysis specialists GlobalData analyzing shale gas prospects and developments in Europe. The report provides information about Europe’s current shale gas market, and gives information on the European natural gas industry, the region’s shale gas reserves and their contribution to the international markets. Natural gas has been an important resource for Europe, especially with the steady rise in its natural gas demand over many years. Currently, Europe’s consumption for natural gas surpasses the region’s domestic production, and is higher than twice the region’s gas production. This has led to increased imports mostly from Russia, Norway, Algeria and Qatar. This increased dependency on imports has led to a drive within Europe to seek alternative sources of natural gas and shale gas, the latter of which, in this scenario, has emerged as a lucrative option.

Scope

This report provides analysis of the shale gas markets in Europe, key companies and the key trends and issues in the industry. The report primarily focuses on -
  • Shale gas reserves in Europe
  • Key companies engaged in shale gas development in Europe
  • Key exploration projects in Polish shale basins
  • Key issues and trends in shale gas development in Europe
  • Competitive landscape of the European shale gas market

Reasons to buy

The report will allow you to make decisions in a more rapid and time sensitive manner. It will allow you to -
  • Understand the market positioning of the major shale gas countries and companies in Europe
  • Identify opportunities and challenges in European shale gas market
  • Develop business strategies with the help of specific insights about the second most important shale destination in the world
  • Identify business opportunities through comprehensive knowledge about activities taken up by companies in Europe, especially Poland, for shale development.
