Polish shale-gas production in five years

Large scale production set to begin earlier than initially proposed by the government

Large-scale shale-gas production in Poland could start in five years, earlier than the government's prediction of eight to 10 years, says the head of Lane Energy in Poland, Kamlesh Palmar. Lane Energy, which holds shale-gas licences in northern Poland, will know more about the potential scope for production from its fields in November, after analysing results from test drilling, but Palmar says it's too early to estimate the potential profitability of unconventional gas production in the country, which is holding back exploration. According to a recent study by the US Energy Information Administration, Poland's technically recoverable shale-gas reserves are the biggest in Europe, at an estimated 5.3 trillion cm.
