Press release

Houston, USA, February 10, 2014 – As shale gas continues to revolutionize the US energy market and shale development spreads to additional countries, Baker & McKenzie has published an International Guide to Shale Gas as a resource for companies looking at global shale opportunities.

In addition to providing a regional examination of shale gas operations, the Guide offers a unique analysis of local law and key contractual issues in ten “Hot Countries” for shale gas projects: Algeria, Argentina, Australia, China, Poland, Russia, South Africa, United Kingdom, Ukraine and the United States.

“Shale gas has been a game changer in the US and clients are rapidly moving into new markets to capitalize on high-potential shale opportunities,” said Hugh Stewart, Head of the Firm’s Global Oil and Gas Practice. “We are excited to offer a single, comprehensive resource for companies seeking global insight in this area.”

Designed for oil and gas industry executives, environmental companies, and the financial services sector, the Guide is available online. It is likely the first single-source of information for the shale industry in many areas, including:

  • A review of the key contractual issues to consider when negotiating a shale gas permit;
  • A first-of-its-kind Aide-Mémoire table comparing conventional vs. unconventional hydrocarbon regimes for the Hot Countries;
  • Comparative maps depicting shale gas reserves and policy approaches in Africa/Middle East, Asia Pacific, CIS, Europe, Latin America and North America;
  • A structure chart reflecting the administration of oil and gas activities in each of the Hot Countries;
  • A table of the companies currently involved in shale gas operations in each of the Hot Countries.

The Firm plans to add new countries to the Guide in subsequent editions, tracking the global shale industry’s expansion…
