EMF 26

Changing the Game?: Emissions and Market Implications

of New Natural Gas Supplies

This working group is exploring several key issues, including the following:

  • focus on the implications of the rapid growth of US natural gas supplies - primarily shale gas - and address both emissions and consumer market implications;
  • draw on the shale gas reserve and production estimates developed by others (such as EIA, MIT and National Petroleum Council); and
  • evaluate the implications for North American markets (international opportunities might be a future effort).

We welcome comments about what topics should be covered in this effort and recommendations about groups that would be valuable participants.
