Report summary

The most significant commercial issue for unconventional gas development in France is the government's current ban on hydraulic fracturing. In June 2011, the French legislature passed a law banning the use of hydraulic fracturing techniques throughout the entire country, which effectively suspended all exploration activity. In mid-2012, seven exploration permits to explore unconventional areas were officially rejected as well.
