Shale gas, a new Eldorado for gas exploration

Interview with Hedi Sellami (June 2011)
Are we entering a golden age of gas ? The answer to this question, asked by the International Energy Agency in the introduction of its latest report on the global market of energy, is likely to be positive, as experts ensure a bright future for this source of energy. Unconventional resources have a lot to do with it : in the United States, shale gas in particular has caused a veritable gold rush. Not without causing serious concerns for the environment ...Read more
