What is the outlook for the shale gas industry outside of the US over the coming 3-5 years?

Victor Hugo’s sentence “Nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come” also counts the same way for a technology. Even if there are strong market participants, who want to protect their ground for the usage only of conventional natural gas; and even if these are in some countries with some public opinions against shale gas, there will be at least one company in one country who will break this fragile price / quantities construct by using fracking. The consequence will be a continously decreasing price level, down to a point where the demand (maybe of power production) will be strong enough to pick up all the big quantities.
