North America’s shale gas success is unlikely to be replicated in other countries, according to a report published on Thursday by the UN Conference on Trade and Development.

“It is highly unlikely that Europe will experience the same level of shale gas development as in the United States,” reported Climate Home News, which cited the UN report.

However, Jean-Baptiste Dubreil, a senior gas analyst at the International Energy Agency, told the outlet Argentina was the most promising prospect.
