Unlocking tight and shale gas
Technological advancements are helping us to unlock major sources of natural gas trapped in dense rock, known as tight and shale gas, dramatically altering the energy landscape. We take many steps to help protect the environment where we operate and work closely with communities to address local concerns and help develop local economies and improve how we operate.
Drilling in different directions from one central location is helping us in exploring and producing natural gas trapped tightly in rock and limit our environmental footprint.
Meeting with locals, supporting community projects, providing jobs and training are part of our efforts to work with communities and share benefits – such as new transport networks – where we develop tight and shale gas resources.
We follow global operating principles focused on safety, environmental safeguards, and engagement with nearby communities to unlock resources safely and responsibly.
