While it is useful to question if UK shale is going to be viable, examining how to make it happen is what matters. The upcoming licence round, increasing support from the UK Government, growing investment from overseas investors and strengthening resource estimates, mean UK shale is closer than ever to being fully explored and validated. However, the general election next year, rising public opposition and limited domestic fracturing expertise, mean there are still significant barriers that need overcome; all of which operators are rapidly and energetically addressing to make sure the UK can fully exploit its wealth of onshore unconventional resources.
Being the UKs most action-focused conference and the first of its kind in 2012, the UK Shale Congress: Making It Happen has been working with operators, government and suppliers to help drive forward progress from the very beginning. This year's congress has been yet again re-researched to reflect the rapidly changing industry dynamics and deliver insights on the most current and urgent issues facing operators today.
