UK Shale Gas 2016 is a unique opportunity for engineers to understand how they can contribute to the UK shale gas industry and support the future supply chain.  

The UK's energy crisis is slowly but surely getting worse and finding suitable solutions to it are at the forefront of the government's mind. The arguments for and against shale gas have expanded and now feed into the wider energy security and climate change debate.

We know that the UK offers fruitful shale gas potential both in its resources and in its ability to keep the lights on and with the election of a government who coined shale gas as the 'silver bullet' to the energy crisis, investment and support is only going to continue to grow. Given that Amber Rudd is driving it forward, it is clear that shale gas is a suitable solution to ensuring that the UK can sustain its future energy consumption.

UK Shale Gas 2016 is a must-attend event for engineers to discover how they can ensure their organisation is at the forefront of future energy consumption
