Summary

Gas Shale Development in Emerging Countries (Poland, China, Australia, Argentina and South Africa) - Market Analysis, Industry Scenario and Key Companies is the latest report from industry analysis specialists GlobalData analyzing shale gas prospects and developments in countries beyond North America. The report provides information regarding gas shale resources, shale gas reserves, exploration, and development activities in countries such as Poland, China, Australia, Argentina, and South Africa.

Shale gas development activities, which are credited with turning around the energy scenario in North America, are now being taken up in other parts of the world. Currently, some of the major destinations for shale gas exploration activities beyond North America include Poland, China, Australia, Argentina and South Africa. Among these countries, Poland is currently at the forefront of shale gas development with active exploration blocks, and licensing completed. In other countries such as Argentina, Australia and China focus is also increasing on shale gas development activities. A number of other countries are also developing plans and policies for shale gas development. The report is built using the data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GlobalDatas team of industry experts.
