World Energy Outlook Special Report on Unconventional Gas
 
Natural gas is poised to enter a golden age, but this uturehinges critically on the successul development o theworld’s vast unconventional gas resources. North Americanexperience shows unconventional gas – notably shale gas –can be exploited economically. Many countries are lining up toemulate this success.But some governments are hesitant, or even actively opposed.They are responding to public concerns that production mightinvolve unacceptable environmental and social damage.This report, in the
World Energy Outlook
series, treats theseaspirations and anxieties with equal seriousness. It eatures twonew cases: a Golden Rules Case, in which the highest practicablestandards are adopted, gaining industry a “social licence to operate”;and its counterpart, in which the tide turns against unconventionalgas as constraints prove too difcult to overcome.The report:
 
 Describes the unconventional gas resource and what is involvedin exploiting it.
 
 Identifes the key environmental and social risks and how theycan be addressed.
 
 Suggests the Golden Rules necessary to realise the economic andenergy security benefts while meeting public concerns.
 
 Spells out the implications o compliance with these rules orgovernments and industry, including on development costs.
 
 Assesses the impact o the two cases on global gas tradepatterns and pricing, energy security and climate change.
