Entities that have concessions for exploration of the shale gas in Poland
Natural resources are spread all around the world in different amounts; the rights of their ownership belong to numerous countries. Each of these countries, making the resources available for the interested parties, decides on taxing this kind of activity. Creating a tax system is essential due to financial needs on the one hand (and the notion that since the resource is depleting, the owner should be appropriately rewarded) and on the other hand - with maintaining a balance between gaining financial profits by the owner/country and the possibility to discourage actual or potential investors by heavy burdens. Such systems are built using different and unlikely concepts and motives in different countries.
The following catalogue presents scientific institutions in Poland which in their works were and are involved in numerous aspects of exploration and extraction of unconventional gas and related topics.
The matters of the impact on the natural environment of the activities connected with exploration and extraction of unconventional gas are usually analyzed with respect to the matters related to water, soil, atmosphere and their influence on the quality of life in areas where this activity takes place.
