Forgotten shale: development of unconventional natural gas production, potential of North American gas exports

Forgotten shale: development of unconventional natural gas production, potential of North American gas exports

Experts turned their attention to shale oil long ago. The shale gas revolution in the USA is not on the forefront of the agenda. However, this issue remains quite intriguing, given that LNG supplies from the USA will begin soon.

Gas deliveries from North America are the result of employment of shale production technologies. This is why it is important right now to understand what is going on in the shale gas industry in the USA and whether North American gas exports threaten positions of the Russian gas in the EU and Asia.

Moreover, it is necessary to see if the shale gas revolution can be exported to other parts of the world.

The report elaborates on the following topics:

  • Shale gas reserves

    • The world’s major holders of shale gas reserves
    • Assessment of the potential of main formations of shale gas and oil: Marcellus, Barnett, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Fayetteville, Woodford, Utica, Bakken and others
  • Gas production in the USA and Canada

    • Current quantities, dynamics, technologies, expenses and cost management
    • Main shale gas producers in the USA, their financial standing
  • LNG exports by North America

    • Main projects, their dynamics and real standing, export prices
  • Forecast of shale gas production and exports until 2040

Looking for Best Tax Treatment of Oil and Gas: Fiscal Experiments Continued
The subject of taxation became the absolute hit of 2018. The government once again decided to rewrite the rules of the game. President Putin’s new inauguration decree served as the main pretext. It turned out that about 8 trillion roubles extra was necessary for the new national projects announced. The Cabinet did not take long to decide where the funds should be taken. The result was acceleration of the so-called tax manoeuvre started as far back as 1 January 2015. It suggested shifting the tax burden to the wellhead: the effect on the state budget of gradual abandonment of the export duty will be more than compensated for by quicker growth in mineral resources extraction tax (MRET). The laws on tax reform have already gone through the parliament and will take effect as of next year. This means nothing good for companies.
