Shale Gas

86 result(s) found.

shale gas  Some reservoirs produce natural gas from shale. The fact that shale is both the hydrocarbon source rock and the reservoir rock makes producing shale gas a challenging and rewarding task. Terms range from adsorbed gas to well plan, and all have been reviewed by technical experts focusing on shale gas.
