Poland to host conference on shale gas on June 9-10

June 5, 2014

On June 9th−10th, the third edition of the international ShaleScience conference will be held in Warsaw, bringing together scientists and experts from Poland and around the world to discuss shale gas recovery techniques that could prove the most effective in the Polish geological setting, Orlen said on June 5. The speakers will draw on the first available results of the prospecting operations carried out in 2009−2014, and will undertake a comparative analysis of Polish and American reservoir properties.

The third ShaleScience conference, entitled 'Evolution of the Notion of Shale Gas Stimulation', will be held on June 9th−10th at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw. The event's founder and organiser is ORLEN Upstream, the leader in shale gas exploration in Poland. The partners of the conference are leading research centres from Poland and abroad: AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, the Oil and Gas Institute – National Research Institute, and the Energy and Geoscience Institute – University of Utah. The event will be held under the honorary patronage of the Polish Ministry of the Environment, and will be attended by the world's experts in geology, geophysics and petroleum engineering. The main focus of this year's conference will be to formulate the most effective approach to the design and implementation of techniques for the stimulation of Polish shale rock formations given their specific geological properties.
