The discovery and development of shale resources, both oil and gas, has transformed the US energy landscape over the past decade, contributing to high profile claims that the US could become self sufficient in energy, and a major exporter of gas in the years head. Yet weak North American gas prices have put the shale industry under severe financial pressure, costs of recovery are being inflated by rising input costs, and questions are also being raised about the true potential and performance of reserves. Can the industry continue to grow, or is it beginning to bump against its limits? Are low gas prices and falling production levels a temporary blip, and set to recover? Will OPEC keep oil prices low to discourage oil shale development? How sustainable is the shale transformation?

The shale revolution which has transformed the US could potentially go global. According to the US Energy Information Agency, at least 32 countries worldwide have shale gas potential which, if developed, could increase the world’s recoverable gas resources by more than 40 percent. Shale oil deposits globally are also reportedly huge, significantly more than conventional oil, and present in such counties as Russia, Brazil Jordan and Morocco. But just how replicable is the shale revolution outside of the US? Which countries have the right combination of favourable geology, developed service infrastructure, supportive policies and regulation, public support, sophisticated finance and other essential capabilities to develop these resources on a commentcial scale? What are the prospects for shale in Europe and in China?

 If the world’s potential shale gas deposits were commercially exploited, global gas capacity could expand significantly and have a wide ranging impact on global energy and trade flows. If the US alone were to become an LNG exporter and all current applications for LNG export licences currently before the DOE were to be permitted, it is estimated that the US could export twice as much gas as Qatar, the current world leader in LNG exports. The result could be a radical transformation of the global LNG trade. Will the US become an exporter of LNG, successfully addressing current political, financial and planning challenges? What would it mean for other sources such as OPEC countries, for new deepwater fields off Africa and Brazil, and for the role of Russia in the global energy markets? Would it lead to the long-awaited global market for gas with a universal price decoupled from the price of oil? How would it impact gas prices?

3:50 pm - 4:35 pmPanel: Sorting Frack from Fiction: Shale and the Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy

Beyond the positive impacts in terms of energy and economic transformation, the surge in shale is likely to have more complex impacts on our energy system than is widely assumed. Increasingly vocal protestors claim that fracking can release unacceptable levels of methane, plays havoc with water supplies and exacerbate global warning.  Governments in a number of counties have placed a monatorium on shale development.  There are also fears that the abundance of cheaper “cleaner” gas will crowd out renewables, nuclear and efficiency measures to curb emissions. Others argue that by replacing coal in power generation, shale is in fact beneficial to the environment with gas providing the essential bridging fuel to the low-carbon future. How significant are the protests regarding the environmental impacts of shale, and will they stop or delay shale oil and gas production? Will economic considerations triumph over environmental concerns? How good or bad is shale for the environment-does it helps mititigate, or exacerbate climate change? How is cheap gas changing the outlook for renewables and nuclear energy? Is the return of fossil fuels going to confine carbon-free energy to the margins? What will be the consequences for the environment if it does?
