Unconventional Natural Gas Production

The transition from fossil to renewable energy sources plays a crucial role in decreasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Natural gas is seen as an important decarbonization option for the transition phase that can help accelerate the shift from emissions intensive energy carriers such as coal to a net-zero emissions future primarily based on renewable energy.

Due to the global decline of fossil energy reserves and the uncertain politics of countries exporting conventional natural gas, unconventional natural gas production has become increasingly important in the last decade. However, environmental risks are associated with the unconventional natural gas production that are of concern to both environmentalists and the public.
