About Us

The shale gas debate in Europe is extremely important for the future of our energy supply. It is therefore essential that the debate is balanced, informative and engaging to allow the public to come to their own conclusions on the issue.

As a result, the industry decided to set-up a dedicated resource centre that is open to anyone who wants to understand more about shale gas, tight gas and coalbed methane.

Launched in 2012, this platform brings together industry, experts and academics to collect, share and communicate the interesting science and technology involved in shale gas exploration. It will also provide facts about the potential of responsibly developing Europe’s onshore energy reserves of shale gas.

Shale Gas Europe is funded by the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) and managed by FTI Consulting. IOGP is the voice of the global upstream industry. Its Members produce more than half of the world’s oil and over a third of its gas. They operate in all producing regions: the Americas, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, the Caspian, Asia and Australia.
