Shale gas is a natural gas (predominantly methane) found in shale rock. Natural gas produced from shale is often referred to as "unconventional" and this refers to the type of rock type in which it is found. "Conventional" oil and gas refers to hydrocarbons which have previously sought in sandstone or limestone, instead of shale or coal which are now the focus of unconventional exploration. Shale gas has become an increasingly important source of natural gas in the United States since the start of this century, and interest has spread to potential gas shales in the rest of the world. In 2000 shale gas provided only 1% of U.S. natural gas production; by 2010 it was over 20% and the U.S. government's Energy Information Administration predicts that by 2035, 46% of the United States' natural gas supply will come from shale gas.
