NEW YORK, May 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Although controversial for its environmental problems (pollution of water supplies and emissions of greenhouse gases), the toxicity of the products in the fracturing fluid (carcinogenic and neurotoxic), and its cost, shale gas has been extracted on a large scale since 2000. It is found on every continent but its extraction is most intensive in China, Argentina, Algeria and the United States. Shale gas, also called bedrock gas, appears as an alternative to reduce energy imports and increase the income of a country.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) forecast an increase in energy requirements by 40 to 50% by 2030. This abundant natural gas resource presents a potential solution for meeting the increasing energy requirement. Shale gas is trapped at great depths in marl and argillaceous rocks and is retained by an impermeable layer beneath. The technical extraction of shale (hydraulic fracturing) which pollutes and consumes water, needs to be optimized to meet the environmental challenges. The work in R&D today focuses on exploring the basements and extraction of deposits (3D modeling, microseismic technique, development of new propants, ultrafiltration water processes ...).
Featuring 30 companies' profiles such as Baker Hughes Incorporated and Chevron Corporation, and 30 R&D Laboratories such as the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of University of California, or the Department of Geological Sciences of the Indiana University Bloomington, this report is ideal for anyone wanting:
- Identify R&D Partners,
- Obtain IP & Technologic Intelligence,
- Develop your R&D Partnerships,
- And also benchmark competitors.
…all on a global scale.
You will also find 50 expert's profiles, containing their scientific works and details of their field of expertise.
These Key Innovation Leaders are based across the 3 main geographical areas around the globe for scientific expertise: North America (USA, Canada…), Europe (France, Germany…) and Eastern Asia (Japan, Korea, Taiwan…).
For each of them, you will receive a scientific profile updated at time of order, a selection of focused works and a presentation of their collaborative partners, as well as an in-depth explanation of why companies such as Baker Hughes Incorporated are leaders on Shale Gas.
A Panorama is composed of:
- A global overview of the subject (issues, distribution of sources of expertise, international networks, European projects, main standards...)
- A selection of scientific profiles of actors (research centers , companies, experts)
- A selection of targeted works (from 50 different types of scientific and technical documents from more than 250 data sources).
Here are some examples of our data sources:
Research institutes databases (NASA, MIT, Fraunhofer, ...)
Patent Databases (European Patent Office, USPTO, ...)
Thematic Databases (MedLine/PubMed, INRA, ...)
Project Databases (Cordis FP-7, FP-6, ...)
Panorama are generated and updated with the unique mapping technology developed by Expernova, which covers 52 countries. Expernova data base is constantly growing, so each Panorama updated at any given time is potentially different from the others Panorama generated at other times on the same subject.
