Accenture is a global consulting and management company, with over 200,000 people working with clients in well over 100 countries. Their report, “Water and Shale Gas Development” details how countries around the world stand to benefit from the many lessons learned thus far in the US regarding shale gas operations and water management.
Two of the main points they make are:
• The benefits of collaboration with regulators
• Sharing, as in infrastructure, with other operators in the same basin
They specifically discuss how Argentina, China, Poland and South Africa can benefit economically and sustainably in shale gas development from these lessons.
