According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the production of shale gas could be set to triple over the next 20 years if industry and government can address concerns of acceptance from the public.

These ‘golden rules’ intend to define a framework within which responsible alternative gas extraction should be conducted. A summary of these guidelines can be found by clicking here.
