shale gas is a conventional natural gas deposit

  • science -

    That statement is false in my opinion.

    It is a relatively new form of natural gas deposit that has only been exploited in recent decades. It could be come the greatest source of energy in North America for a century of more. I would not consider it "conventional". Shale rock has to be broken up or "fracked" to release it.
