Global Shale Gas Market, 2014-2020: By drivers and restrain, Technology, Application, Size & Share


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2017 -- According to the report, the global demand for shale gas was valued at USD 63 billion in 2014 is expected to reach USD 105 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 9% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global shale gas market stood at around 10.0 trillion cubic feet in 2014. Zion Market Research has published a new report titled "Shale Gas Market by Technology (Horizontal Drilling, Hydraulic Fracturing, and Water Usage Issue) for Power Generation, Residential, Industrial, Commercial, Transportation and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2014-2020."

Shale gas refers to natural gas that is trapped within shale formations. Shales are fine-grained sedimentary rocks that can be rich sources of petroleum and natural gas. Shale gas is obtained from the various shales like Marcellus, eagle ford, Niobrara, Barnett, and Bakken. It is popularly known as natural gas. It is primarily used as a feedstock for production of ammonia and methane gas. To extract shale gas from the source rock, the oil and gas industry uses two proven techniques: horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing involves injecting high-pressure water to crack the source rock and release the natural gas it contains. 99.5% of the injection fluid is a mixture of water and sand, while the rest is a few additives needed to prevent bacterial contamination of the reservoir and make the process more efficient.
