Shale gas has recently made headlines the world over. How good is it for the environment and what is its water footprint, especially in the Indian context?

Shale gas, like other petroleum products such as oil and coal, is formed from the remains of plants, animals and micro-organisms that lived millions of years ago. However, this natural gas is made up of shale formations, a common name for rock that was once layers of clay or mud. Since these rocks aren't very permeable, gas is trapped in it due to its inability to travel. This is the reason that producing shale gas is more complex than other petroleum products.
