Description The upcoming years will show whether or not the North American model of unconventional natural gas resources development can be replicated outsider the continent. In Europe, Poland has recently gained most attention and in this sense it is considered to be a test case for whole Union. This book presents key dimensions which will either foster or inhibit possible development of this resource in Poland: geology, technology, infrastructure, environmental imprint and the role of the EU. The main focus of the book is a stakeholder analysis dealing with IOCs, PGNiG, government, local communities, NGOs and the EU. The book also features an evaluation of several scenarios of possible unconventional gas development in Poland and their consequences for Central European gas market.
