Description The study provides a basic map of the current unconventional natural gas (UNG) situation in Poland, which is considered a test case for European UNG’s expansion. We mostly focus on Poland’s and Europe’s in general social, political, economic, and environmental aspects that can affect production. While these “soft” factors are currently somewhat discounted in the debate, setting an appropriate regulatory framework or local community resistance will have as serious an impact on production as for example geological exploration results.
