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 …

Overview of Legal Situation on Shale Gas in Europe

The main purpose of the Study is to analyse how the relevant applicable European legal framework, including environmental law, is applied to the licensing/authorisation and operational permitting for prospection, exploration and production/exploitation of shale gas based on a sample of four Member States, i.e. Poland, France, Germany and Sweden. It is, however, not purpose of …
