Currently shale gas is a popular way to get natural gas out of the ground but this may be stalled as more environmental groups oppose the fracking methods as they feel it harms the environment in the process. The biggest threat to the production of of shale gas environmental concerns which are only going to continue as more people oppose this method of natural gas production in many areas of the world.
