What is the real use of shale gas boom for Germany?

Jump to last reply

It seems to me that current shale gas boom, initiated by our US partners in Europe, and especially here, in Germany, is rather risky thing! And not only because of deliberate pushing their fracking technology for extracting shale gas in our North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony may easily cause earthquakes and contaminate water supplies.
The matter is that Germany has not own shale gas production techniques yet. And it means that we will simply have to apply exclusively US technically advanced technologies here, which surely leads to US total control over our shale gas resources, turning the USA into the top energy producer in the world! While we are falling into a position of energy dependence... well, not from Russians, but from Americans! But is it any sense in trying to bargain one trouble for another, eh?
