This review presents an overview of unconventional gas extraction highlighting the environmental impacts and challenges.
Impact of Shale Gas Development on Water Resources: A Case Study in Northern Poland
This study focussed on the potential impacts on regional water resources within the Baltic Basin in Poland, both in terms of quantity and quality and modeled the future development of the shale play for the time period 2015–2030 using the LUISA modeling framework.
Spatial and temporal trends in freshwater appropriation for natural gas development in Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale Play
We characterize the appropriation of surface water for the extraction of natural gas from Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale, and we examine the influences of these diversions on stream flows at 300


Process based life-cycle assessment of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale.
Results show that GHG emissions through combustion are similar to conventional natural gas, with an EROI of 12:1 (90% confidence interval of 4:1-13:1), lower than conventional fossil fuels but higher than unconventional oil sources.

Shale gas development impacts on surface water quality in Pennsylvania
A large-scale examination of the extent to which shale gas development activities affect surface water quality can inform future voluntary measures taken by shale gas operators and policy approaches taken by regulators to protect surface waterquality as the scale of this economically important activity increases.
Wastewater Generation and Disposal from Natural Gas Wells in Pennsylvania
The recent boom in natural gas production in Pennsylvania has generated huge volumes of wastewater. Key drivers have been a combination of high prices for natural gas, advances in horizontal
