PGNiG gas giant failed to achieve satisfactory gas flow in latest shale gas test in Wysin, northern Poland, as maximum flow achieved merely exceeded 2 m3 per minute, which might mean PGNiG will give up on the shale project, CEO Piotr Wozniak told reporters.

“To date, shale seems to be unproductive in our conditions,” Wozniak said.

Natural gas is actually present in the shale as shown by analysis of rock samples, “but we failed to extract it, despite greatly executed fracking,” Wozniak added.
