POLISH GAS RESERVES

The reserves are large enough to supply Poland for an estimated 70 years if they don't export. The real advantage is less dependence on the Russians, which will drive the price down. The so called 'ballast' gasses are usually not a problem ( usually CO2). There is NO sulfur in shale-gas, so that is not a concern.

The effects on water supplies are easily handled by using modern methods. The affects are usually short term, and on surface water supplies, not water wells. It may well be the best thing Poland has done for itself in a long time.

French, if I am not mistaken...

g'man thanks

That moron, sure he's only full of hot air....anyway, you still haven't made any suggestions, you've only criticised what I've been saying, hardly constructive.

Would norway be a good option, or would you suggest the ruskies or the germans, or would poland be able to do it all without outside help?

Probably not since they're already sold drilling rights to an american company and i;ve been told that some german companies are sniffing around too

If they can't do it themselves. I mean, business is business. The idea of tying a Polish contract to a certain nation is something that belongs in the last century. The need to go for the best deal they can get, if that means buying the technology and doing it themselves, so be it. Personally I think the best bet would be to pay for another company to go in and liberate those hydrocarbons for the Polish market and just use the threat of harvesting them to drive down the price of Russian gas.

The Norwegians aren't going to help, I don't think that Statoil has experience with shale gas.

I've a friend who works for a gas company and said that the americans are prob the best bet, because they'll pay more for the license and they've the most experiences, but as you've seen I'd be nervous of an american company.

Whatever happens, I hope it creates a ton of jobs and will make energy cheaper

Try and learn a lesson from Scotland. Look how they have managed their gas over the years, David. There are case studies available.

Possibilities are endless. Just plant more beans. ;)

You need to research hydraulic fracturing if you have shale beds and be sure the chemicals they put into the ground to release the gas from the shale won't pollute your ground water. Make sure the condensate tanks do not pollute the air. If Poland experiences a gas boom, the threat to the environment will be significant.

Those interested in the topic of shale gas in Poland may wish to visit Natural Gas for Europe blog naturalgasforeurope.com which provides answers and information relevant to much of this thread.

That's my take on it all.
