Energy Post: “The new fracking – how shale gas may yet transform the European energy market”

Tuesday, 14th July 2015

“Shale gas in Europe – it’s a revolution that does not seem to be happening. Even in countries like Poland and the UK, where governments are pushing it. However, European shale gas may get a second chance – if US company eCorp is to be believed. CEO John Thrash of eCorp says his company can frack without using any water, with no chemicals and much cheaper. The French government first embraced eCorp’s technology, only to ignore it later, “for political […]

Energy Post: “Dramatic shale gas plea falls on deaf ears in Paris, but Brussels opens back door to fracking”

Friday, 17th April 2015

“A report from the French Ministry of the Economy and Industrial Recovery concludes that France could have its own shale gas revolution, with hundreds of billions in revenues and hundreds of thousands of new jobs. What is more, with the help of a unique new technology, based on propane stimulation, the shale gas could be produced without harm to the environment. The report, already produced in June 2014, was, however, ignored by the French government, newspaper Le Figaro has revealed. […]

Industrie & Technologies : “Heptafluoropropane stimulation, an invention almost made in France”

Wednesday, 15th April 2015

“After developing pure propane stimulation, the service company ecorpStim has developed the concept of stimulation with heptafluoropropane especially for France, in 2013. France eventually maintained its circular of 2012, which prohibited any drilling targeting unconventional hydrocarbons on French soil, thereby prohibiting all experiments including those of alternative techniques to hydraulic fracturing. The company should now propose the technology to all interested industry stakeholders. According Florence Maisel, Managing director of Interel France and Director of External Relations of ecorpStim EMEA (Europe, […]
