Total pulls out of Poland shale gas, not economically viable

WARSAW, April 14 (Reuters) - France's Total has not renewed its only shale gas exploration licence in Poland, a spokesman for the company said on Monday, highlighting the problems Warsaw faces in reducing its reliance on Russian energy.

The company said that, despite the presence of gas, it had concluded the area it was exploring in eastern Poland near the Ukraine border was not economically viable.

[note: this is the same shale gas formation that stretches into Denmark, and was also found to not be economically interesting in Sweden. this could mean good news for Denmark]

US shale gas will not help Europe, only renewable energy investment

In the wake of the Russian takeover of Crimea, there have been a number of calls for weaning Europe from dependence on Russian natural gas. Some have suggested that Europe would abandon environmental restrictions on drilling for oil and gas to increase domestic production. To help, the U.S. would continue to massively increase production of oil and gas as well as its capacity to liquefy natural gas and transport it to Europe.

Profitjagt: Skifergas - nej tak

I 2014 starter det franske gasselskab Total sin første prøveboring ”Vendsyssel 1” efter den eftertragtede skifergas i Nordjylland. Senere forventes de at starte op i Nordsjælland. Staten og gasselskabet drømmer om et nyt energieventyr, der kan give den ønskede ”vækst”. Om det er en god idé at hente gassen op og øge mængden af fossile brændsler er en anden sag.

Boringerne kommer i USA tætere og tættere til boligerne. Ejerne klager over massive værdiforringelser.

Da Gary Gless i 2002 købte sit hus i Los Angeles, var det for ham, som en lottogevinst. På området overfor var planlagt, verdens største naturpark. Men virkeligheden blev noget helt andet. I stedet for grønne områder, skal Gless i dag kikke på et støvet landskab, fyldt med mange boreanlæg. Der udvindes olie og gas ved hj. af fracking, som skal gøre USA uafhængig af leverancerne fra østen. Med Fracking fik USA tusinde nye arbejdspladser, faldende energipriser, samt en stigende økonomi i visse regioner. Men for millioner af husejere blev Fracking til et mareridt. –

“Hvem har lyst til at bo sådan et sted?” – Det er ikke blot udsigten, som Gless klager over. Det er også meterlange revner på huset, og en række Swimming-Pools i omgivelsen bristede, og vandet løb over gaderne. Han vurderer, at hans husets værdi i dag, højst er 1/5 af af den oprindelige købspris. Potentielle købere frygter også at drikkevandskvaliteten, gennem fracking, hvor mange kemikalier presses med højt tryk i undergrunden, reduceres. – Også ejendomsmæglerne i området slår alarm. “Mange af disse huse kan næsten ikke sælges mere”. Siger Phyllis Wolper fra Denton i Texas.

Fire in the hole: After fracking comes coal

Setting fire to coal underground could answer our energy prayers, or start an environmental disaster on a bigger scale than ever before

IF YOU thought shale gas was a nightmare, you ain't seen nothing yet. A subterranean world of previously ignored reserves is about to be opened up. These are the vast coal deposits that have proved unreachable by conventional mining, along with gas deposits around them. To the horror of anyone concerned about climate change, modern miners want to set fire to these deep coal seams and capture the gases this creates for industry and power generation. Some say this will provide energy security for generations to come. Others warn that it is a whole new way to fry the planet.

Study Shows Fracking Is Bad for Babies

The energy industry has long insisted that hydraulic fracking -- the practice of fracturing rock to extract gas and oil deep beneath the earth's surface -- is safe for people who live nearby. New research suggests this is not true for some of the most vulnerable humans: newborn infants.

In a study presented today at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association in Philadelphia, the researchers -- Janet Currie of Princeton University, Katherine Meckel of Columbia University, and John Deutch and Michael Greenstone of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology -- looked at Pennsylvania birth records from 2004 to 2011 to assess the health of infants born within a 2.5-kilometer radius of natural-gas fracking sites. They found that proximity to fracking increased the likelihood of low birth weight by more than half, from about 5.6 percent to more than 9 percent. The chances of a low Apgar score, a summary measure of the health of newborn children, roughly doubled, to more than 5 percent.

Polish shale gas deal expires, source says no renewal

Polish shale gas deal expires, source says no renewal

The deal's expiration adds to a series of mixed signals from the shale gas industry on its prospects in Poland, eastern Europe's biggest economy.

Enthusiasm towards unconventional gas reserves in the country faded earlier this year after three global players decided to pull out, quoting poor results, red tape and an uncertain legal landscape.

U.S. energy giant Chevron, however, joined forces with PGNiG earlier in December on shale gas exploration in Poland.

Poland launched a major push into shale three years ago when Tusk said the country would seek to produce unconventional gas on a commercial scale in 2014.

The plan has suffered setbacks, however, as Poland's estimated recoverable reserves were slashed by 90 percent.
