European Unconventional Gas Summit to focus on challenges to shale gas exploration WWF remains critical of shale gas
DMN Newswire--2012-12-13--More than 200 industry experts will gather in Vienna in January for the third European Unconventional Gas Summit to discuss the future for shale gas in all key EU countries and debate the best practices to overcome the main exploration and production challenges.  Says Bryony Senczyszyn, the event's conference director:  "increased public concern over the environmental risks linked to fracking and a continuing uncertain regulatory landscape mean shale gas exploration in Europe faces its tallest hurdles to date.  For the industry to move forward, operators must ensure constant, transparent dialogue with NGOs, governments and local communities."

Fracking techniques need to tailored
Among the attendees and speakers are operators such as Talisman Energy, MOL and BNK Petroleum, government representatives from countries across Europe including Germany, Poland, Hungary and Ukraine as well as key NGOs including the WWF, Food & Europe Group, and The Global Warming Policy Foundation.  Says the European Unconventional Gas Summit's Bryony Senczyszyn:  "As each shale play is different, operators are discovering that fracking techniques, stimulations and technologies need to be tailored to each reservoir to gain maximum profitability.  This means locating sweet spots and monitoring reservoirs efficiently has never been more important for operators and service companies.  Technical experts at our new Technology Academy Day including NuTech and Tamboran Resources, will show how they successfully deliver accurate and high-quality reservoir characterisation information."

WWF still concerned with shale gas
Dr Stephan Singer, Director, Global Energy Policy, Global Climate and Energy Initiative at the WWF International, is part of a panel discussion in the programme focusing on public, community and media engagement.  He says the WWF is still concerned about unconventional gas.
