Analyzing Unconventional Gas Production Methods 2016
The continued and ever increasing demand for energy resources in developing as well as developed countries is pushing the exploration and production focus of unconventional gas resources. Unconventional gas though had been classified as uneconomic for commercial purposed however these sources have also proved their worth with the development of better techniques to harness them and apply them to commercial usage.

The global natural gas market has seen a retardant growth even though it may be higher in values than the earlier years of production. The US sees a rising impact of household sector gas usage and consumption which has forced the development of unconventional gas in order that gas of higher calorific values may be dedicated to commercial usage whereas more mass usage applications be tried with unconventional gas; thereby taking the production burden off the major producers.

Aruvian Research’s report on Analyzing Unconventional Gas Production Methods 2016 outlines the historical perspective of gas usage as an energy source and the increased focus on the production of gas for commercial as well as domestic usage. The report provides an overview of the geographically diverse production of natural gas and categorization of unconventional gas sources.

The report provides a detailed explanation of the market developments and the advancements in gas extraction technologies which are spurred by the strong demand for unconventional gas. Further, the research report explains the constraints to the development of unconventional gas sources and also provides the overall geo-commercial footprint of unconventional gas.

Summing up, the report provides an outlook on the economical perspective of unconventional gas and the major industry contributors of unconventional gas and their relative market positions in this sector.
