SHALE GAS STRATEGY Horizontal wells to extract shale gas Unike natural gas, shale gas lo removed in an unoonventional and expensive way To put tin simple terms, the conventional way of exdractirg ratural gas is ke putting a straw through a soft drirk id. The gas is straght down. Extraction of shele gas inclves drilirg to thousends of meters below the surtace then tunring the cril horizontaly and agen stil drling many more thoueands of meters.
