Example of BOYD Marcellus Shale Related Projects Include (client name withheld):
The Marcellus formation is not just one formation in the Appalachain area, it’s one of many located in North America. The formations in North America are not alone either. Shale formations can be found across the globe. Recent estimates reported global shale formations hold 5,760 Tcf of technically recoverable reserves. That is nearly seven times the amount held in the U.S.
It is estimated that China holds the largest amount of reserves. Other countries with significant reserves include Argentina, Mexico, South Africa, Libya, Algeria, France and Poland.
Each of these countries holds hundreds of trillions of cubic feet of shale gas that can be exploited using existing technology. Each country is in varying degrees of development. One of the more advanced countries would be Poland. There are several similarities between Poland’s shale reserves and the U.S. Appalachian region. These similarities are:
Overall, both regions have a mature conventional natural gas market, and the potential for significant growth. The Appalachian shale plays are further developed than the Poland shale plays and could provide insight as to development issues and opportunities.
Several major E&P companies have been making large investments for several years, spending most of their capital on exploration activities. However, there are many areas still to be developed. In addition, the infrastructure and technology market segments have yet to attract significant investment.
