Our Vision

Produce natural gas from shale with the lowest
impact for the people and for the environment



We believe that there is a choice. That there is an alternative to using large volumes of water and chemical additives to produce unconventional hydrocarbons. That there is a more elegant, more sustainable way to extract these resources from the subsurface. That there is a need to take steps towards what should be the second “shale gas revolution”, more respectful of people and of the environment.
We believe that we need to relentlessly improve our technologies, with the objective to get as close as possible to zero impact on health and the environment. And that these improvements must not only target the nature of the stimulation fluids, but also the proppants that we use, some of which being approved for medical use.



We believe that community engagement from the very early stages of a project is paramount to the acceptability of our industry. That everything must be done to maximize the economic and cultural benefit for the local populations, while reducing the visual and noise impacts to the very minimum. That the landscape should be preserved during operations, and brought back to its original stage as soon as production is over.



We believe that natural gas is the best bridge energy in the framework of the energy transition. CO² emissions from the combustion of natural gas to generate electricity are only half of that from burning coal, and conversion to gas is easy, as shown by the spectacular shift from coal to gas that took place in the US in the last recent years. Gas is also essential to compensate for the intermittence of solar or wind energies and can also be an alternative to nuclear. This is why we at eCORP favor the production of natural gas from shale over other types of unconventional hydrocarbons.



We also believe that in a not too distant future, we will be able to achieve a zero impact cradle-to-grave natural gas cycle. The natural gas / methane molecules that are harvested from shale will be burned for electric power generation, producing CO² and water, both of which will be captured. The CO² will then be re-injected to its original geologic resting place, in the depleted shale, thus achieving a large scale removing of CO² from the Earth’s surface / atmosphere.
