Interactive website on Lithuanian shale gas


In response to public interest and willingness to learn more about unconventional hydrocarbons (shale gas and petroleum) resources in our country as well as the environmental and technological aspects behind using them, the Lithuanian Geological Survey under the Ministry of Environment (LGT) has updated the interactive website, developed last year.

It features videos about how gas has formed in clay shale and about shale in Lithuania, a world map of shale gas resources, the latest trends when it comes to the exploration and use of unconventional hydrocarbons, as well as research articles and studies on the subject.

Visitors are able to start and join discussions to share their views.
