Economic Potential for Shale Gas Production in Poland in 2010-2025. Scenario Analysis

Project description:

The project had two main research goals. The first goal was to create three realistic scenarios for the development of shale gas production till 2025, together with defining the level of investment expenditures required in each scenario. The second goal was to examine the macroeconomic effects on the entire Polish economy of  each scenario to develop the shale gas sector. For each scenario, the employment effects and dynamics of GDP, investment, consumption and government expenditures were compared to the baseline, in which shale gas is not extracted.
