Climate impact of potential shale gas production in the EU

The objective of this study was to provide state-of-the-art information to the European Commission on the potential climate implications (via greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions) of possible future technically recoverable shale gas (gas reserves trapped within shale rock) resources in Europe to produce electricity. According to the study, these resources are of a similar scale to those technically recoverable in the U.S.
The study provides also an assessment of the adequacy of GHG emissions reporting frameworks to cover fugitive emissions of the production of shale gas and, if needed, propose measures for its improvement.
