Gas Shales in Europe, 2011 - Market Analysis, Industry Development and Competitive Landscape is the latest report from GlobalData, the industry analysis specialists, that provides insight into the European shale gas industry. The report presents shale gas potential in Europe, and provides details of key exploration areas, major companies engaged in the exploration of shale gas in Europe, drivers and challenges in shale gas development in Europe, and key merger and acquisition (M&A) activities in the European shale gas industry. The report discusses the development of shale gas exploration in Poland, detailing concessions awarded, companies involved, drivers and challenges associated with the development of shale gas in the country, and expected economics. The report also details key developments in shale gas resources in other European countries and analyzes potential implications of shale gas development in Europe on the global oil and gas industry.

Due to its increasing dependence on Russian gas imports, Europe plans to develop alternate avenues to secure natural gas. In addition to diversifying its natural gas suppliers, Europe is keen to develop its own shale gas resources, based on the success of the US gas shale industry. At present, several European countries, such as Poland and Germany, are leasing out huge acres of land to international and local companies to develop shale gas assets.
