Fracking & Shale Gas
Unconventional natural gas production (shale gas) by hydraulic fracturing - Quantification of the Environmental Footprint Due to the global decline of fossil energy reserves and resources, unconventional natural gas production has become increasingly important in the last decade. In this context, unconventional natural gas production means the production of shale gas, tight gas and coal bed methane. A useful approach to determine the environmental footprint of unconventional gas production is Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
