Unconventional hydrocarbon extraction, especially the development of shale gas resources and its related impacts have been subject to significant debates at national, European and international level. Apart from political aspects a considerable amount of research has been performed or is underway in areas such as technology, environment, geology and social issues.

The JRC aims to provide a solid and comprehensive understanding of energy security in support of EU policy, notably in relation to fossil fuels (mainly gas and oil) and power systems.
