     The current growth in production of natural gas from unconventional resources has significantly influenced the economies of primarily two countries: The United States and Canada. It is expected that this trend will continue, with the production of shale gas set to start in other parts of the world, including Europe. An increase in natural gas production in our region would be highly advantageous as it would reduce the dependence on imports and cause a drop in the prices of energy. Additionally the increase would facilitate de-carbonification of the energy sector which in some countries is still mainly based on coal. The transition towards a sustainable energy supply from renewable sources remains unclear, therefore, natural gas from unconventional resources may turn out to be the most promising bridge energy carrier until fossil fuels are replaced by energy sources of a new type. This Conference will shed some new light on chances for the safe and sustainable use of shale gas as well as its future role in the forecasted energy budget of individual countries, especially in Europe.
