The Shale Gas Mirage - by Thomas Porcher[Reading report] by Elsa Walwer

2014-03-03

The author is part of the "Alternative Management" third year specialization program in HEC Paris

At the heart of the shale gas debate, Thomas Porcher delivers a study about the consequences of French shale gas reserves exploitation, from an economical perspective. Stemming from the French legal and economic specificities, he exposes and dismantles the arguments put forward by pro-shale gas industries and lobbies and asserts that they will be no long-term economic benefits in exploiting shale gas reserves in France
