Unconventional Gas

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Unconventional gas resources are those that typically have required greater than industry-standard levels of technology or investment to harvest.

The three most common types of unconventional gas resources are tight sands, coalseam methane (CSM), and shale gas.

In early times, with simpler, cheaper and more readily available sources of hydrocarbons at hand, unconventional gas was overlooked.

But with the search for newer and more secure sources of energy, particularly in the USA, which no longer wishes to be reliant on middle-eastern oil, has come increased investment in unconventional gas exploitation.

The result is that these new sources of gas are now abundant and the price of gas is at record lows as more projects come onstream

The Risk Management Toolbox has been at the forefront of safety implementation in unconventional gas development since our business began.

You could say that our business success is built on being unconventional! 

And it is this unconventional approach that our customers have come to expect.

The cornerstone customers of our business come to us because they know we consistently strived to develop unconventional methods of making HSE work.

And that is why the Risk Tool Box is at the forefront in developing safe systems of work for the unconventional gas sector.

So, if you're on the look-out for unconventional ways to get your safety program rolled-out, it might just be time for you to act in an unconventional manner. You can contact us via the "contact us" page of the website.
