Germany shale gas unconventional concept play

Report summary

In 2016, the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) published a study estimating that Germany held between 0.32 and 2.03 trillion cubic metres (tcm) (11.3 to 71.7 tcf) of recoverable shale gas. This marked a downward revision of their previous estimate of between 0.7 and 2.3 tcm (24.7 to 81.2 tcf), which was based on the assumption that 10% of the total gas-in-place could be extracted. Hydraulic fracturing has been banned in Germany since 2016. As a result, we do not expect there to be any future commercialisation of shale gas reserves in the country.
