Europe shale gas market to enable reduced reliance on Russian natural gas imports

Recent shale gas explorations in Europe have proved highly promising, and with the US already sitting on a number of vast plays. Shale prospects in Europe may well reshape the continents energy market dynamics by easing reliance on Russian natural gas imports.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) stated that unconventional gas reserves in Europe, including tight gas, shale gas and Coal Bed Methane (CBM), are estimated to be around 3,500 trillion cubic feet (tcf). If these reserves were commercially exploited they would produce more than enough to sustain the continents gas demand for the next 60 years.

However, Russia provided around a third of the 16.5 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of natural gas imported by Europe last year alone, and so a move towards self-sustainability could prove highly damaging to this Eastern European nations hydrocarbon export sector.

In addition, shale play exploitation is expected to not only provide the US with enough gas to meet domestic demand, but place the country in a healthy position to export gas to the lucrative Asian market – and at a lower price than its rival Russia.

It may not be time for Russia to panic just yet, though. Europe faces a number of challenges on the road to reaching its shale gas potential, including geological, environmental and political issues that will take time and the implementation of specific EU regulatory directives to address.
