New energy resources from Colorado State, TNO, Shale Experts

Advanced Energy Legislation tracker. TNO’s shale Argument map. Shale market intelligence tool.

Recent contributions to the shale debate this month from Colorado State University, Dutch R&D group TNO and a new information portal from Houston-based Shale Experts. Colorado State has announced the Advanced energy legislation tracker (AEL), an online database of energy-related legislation pending in all 50 states, ‘from solar to natural gas and everything in between.’ The database was created in partnership with Advanced Energy Economy. AEL tracks the 2000 plus current bills likely to impact energy as they move forward.

TNO’s contribution is an ‘argument map’ of shale gas production in EU member states. The attractive document, produced by The Argument Factory, summarizes arguments for and against shale gas production. It has been produced with such fairness to both sides of the argument as to paralyze any decision maker—thus effectively weighing in on the side of the ‘anti’ lobby.

Shale Experts has announced its online market intelligence tool (a.k.a. a website) focusing on global unconventional resource plays. The portal includes an M&A transactions database, rig data, a midstream infrastructure projects database, GIS data, maps and news. Coverage includes emerging plays such as the Cline, Permian and Eaglebine along with Canadian and International plays.
