According to the US Energy Information Administration, Europe could have as much as 639 trillion cubic feet of recoverable shale gas reserves. Exploration has already taken place in Poland and Romania, and most recently the UK has joined the dash for gas.

Potential target areas also include the Baltic, Bulgaria, France, Hungary, and Ukraine. Shale gas exploration requires quality and consistent supplies of proppants for hydraulic fracturing.
