The shale gas industry has seen significant growth in the North American market changing the dynamics of natural gas trading in the region. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to extract gas from low permeability rock sources has presented a major new energy source, which has significantly reduced the need for natural gas imports to the US. Nations across the world are now looking at the possibility of tapping into this resource to supplement domestic gas consumption or even for export. As a consequence, the value of the global shale gas market in 2012 will reach $36.95 bn.
The shale gas market is currently dominated by the US as this is where the methodology to develop shale was pioneered. The US also a number of favourable characteristics that have helped promote the speed of shale gas production. However, this has created a distinctly two tier market between the nations with an established shale gas market and those that are emerging into the industry.
According to geologists there are 142 shale rock bearing basins around the world and only around a quarter of these have proven production potential, mainly in North America. This report will highlight the growing investment in the shale gas industry around the world as energy hungry nations look to emulate the successes seen in North America.

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
HQ: The Woodlands, Texas, USA
Anadarko is one of the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production companies in the world. The company's operations are focused both on and offshore oil and gas in the US, as well as China, Algeria, Brazil, Indonesia, New Zealand and West Africa. Its shale gas operations are entirely focused in the US with interests the Marcellus, Haynesville, Eagle Ford and Utica shale plays.
The low gas price in the US has deflected Anadarko's capital expenditure budget to higher margin projects. Large amounts are however still being spent on development of shales with a high natural gas liquid content such as the Eagle Ford, Marcellus and increasingly the Utica Shale.
HQ: Denver, Colorado, USA
Antero Resources is an independent US based exploration and production company, with a focus on unconventional resources. The company has shale gas assets in the Marcellus, Woodford and Fayetteville shale plays, where the company holds a net acreage of nearly 300,000. Antero is also operating on unconventional oil and NGLs in the Piceance Basin.
The majority of Antero's operations are carried out in the Marcellus shale where almost 80% of the company's capital expenditure is expected to be invested in 2012. The company holds 227,000 acres in the core areas of the play which have shown strong NGL production potential.
