Shale gas has been considered as an unconventional resource to date due to economics and technical challenges encountered. Under current circumstances, shale gas has and is receiving increasing attention as it is being quickly known as a viable energy resource.

Current enhancement in technology and improved methods for fracking have proven that recovering shale gas is a viable and economically sound option in this century.
