Abstract

Shale gas has been one of the sources of natural gas, in small but continuous volumes since the earliest years of development. Nowadays, modern shale gas development has become a technological play, in which the development is facilitated by the technological advances in the oil and gas industry has made in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling over the last two decades. However, the risks remain since shale gas development around the world has met with fierce opposition from local residents and environmental groups due to environmental concerns over the hydraulic fracturing process. If mismanaged, hydraulic fracturing fluid which may contain potentially hazardous chemicals can be released by spills, leaks, faulty well construction, or other exposure pathways. The purpose of this paper is to identify the generic environmental implications of the shale gas extraction and the types of mitigation techniques exist for such cases in the countries with technically recoverable shale gas resources in the world by studying the related articles, book and previous journals. In conducting this project, a few research methodologies such as case study, analysis and evaluation are identified to be carried out to ensure this project to be successfully completed in achieving its objectives.
