Gas shales in Europe

Black shales are organic-rich sedimentary rocks, which potentially may serve as sources to generate hydrocarbons but also as unconventional reservoirs. Geophysical studies (seismics, MT) are carried out to investigate the elastic and electrical properties of black shales. The activities include field experiments in Lower Saxony and Bornholm, accompanied by petrophysical measurements at core material.
