This briefing highlights current events and the latest play intelligence for unconventional upstream projects globally. Coverage includes shale gas, tight gas and tight oil plays beyond the US and Canada, whether proven or emerging. Sources for the news stories include company press releases, industry events, press coverage, and our own modelling changes. The facts are presented, but more importantly, we endeavour to provide proprietary Woodmac views with lots of opinion and analysis to add meaning, context, and relevance.
