FT Global Shale Energy Summit

The ‘shale revolution’ has transformed the world of energy in the last decade. In the US, the discovery and development of shale resources has brought long-held aspirations of energy independence a step closer to reality, and has revitalised the economy and industry.

The shale transformation could now go global as energy companies apply the same techniques that unlocked America’s vast shale potential to other basins around the world. The implications for energy and LNG trade, for the balance of power in global energy markets, and for the world’s efforts to curb emissions and affect a transition to a low-carbon future are profound.


The FT Global Shale Energy Summit: The Global Shale Revolution - Framing the Opportunities and the Risks brought together the energy companies behind the shale revolution, their supporters and detractors, as well as expert opinion from government, academia and civil society to examine the broader implications of the shale revolution for the future of the global energy industry.
