EY - Seizing opportunities in shale gas

Seizing opportunities in shale gas

  • Share

The uniqueness of shale plays requires a highly differentiated approach that is, in many ways, fundamentally opposed to traditional industry business practices.

Shale production has often been likened to the manufacturing process, in that a series of wells is drilled in rapid succession, and adjustments and enhancements are made on the fly. This flexibility and rapid responsiveness led to the North American energy renaissance and the move from scarcity to abundance of oil and gas. Unconventional players are continuously more exposed to risks and increasing velocity, requiring innovation and optimization to become resilient and endure the low price environment. Our professionals have experience addressing critical issues across the entire unconventional gas value chain in the highest-impact areas.
