    Impacts in the USA

    Unconventional Gas exploration has become well established in the USA and there has been much coverage about the low gas prices that have been seen as a result. Similar low prices are very unlikely in the UK as the extraction process is extremely expensive here and high gas prices are needed to make it commercially viable.

    The exploration in the USA has had a dramatic impact on both local people and the environment as the following links show:-
