The spectacular boom in both production and consumption of unconventional gas in the United States is a success story that few would have predicted at the dawn of the new millennium. Large oil companies are fighting to make up for this missed opportunity. Through mergers and acquisitions they have made the sector a key component of corporate strategy. The stakes could not be higher and decisions made now will have huge consequences for the future balance of the global energy industry.

Avec désormais un certain recul, la perspective s'élargit et on commence à anticiper l'apport de ces ressources aux futurs équilibres énergétiques mondiaux.
