dc.description.abstractIn support of the South African government to explore the potential of shale gas, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) commissioned ASSAf to undertake work that would culminate in the development of a national research program commonly referred to as the ‘Science Action Plan’. The workshop intended to unpack and finalise some of the key focal areas. The Science Action Plan proposes ten research topics under six flagship programmes. The workshop focussed on the flagship programme titled “Geology, gas resources, seismicity, exploration technology/engineering and electromagnetic interference”. The overall purpose of the workshop was to: 1. Share experience on the process of shale gas resource quantification and key capabilities required to embark on this process, employing internationally recognized best practice; 2. Expose the South African delegates to the development and application of the complex technologies associated with horizontal drilling and well stimulation using hydraulic fracturing; 3. Discuss scenarios (positive or negative) related to the implementation of a shale gas industry and lessons learnt globally which would inform the implementation of South African regulations to deal appropriately with such challenges; 4. Evaluate and discuss the various technical aspects related to the shale gas extraction value chain.en_ZA
