Summary:
The extraction of natural gas from shale formations is no simple task and perhaps themost expensive when compared to over unconventional gases. Although, its popularityhas grown over the years, there is much to be done to make their production andprocessing more cost-effective. Brief but comprehensive, Shale Gas Production Processesbegins with an overview of the chemistry, engineering and technology of shale gas.  Read more...
