Energy Resources Program
The USGS recently completed a geology-based assessment of continuous gas resources of the lower Paleozoic shales in Denmark. Stratigraphically equivalent strata have been tested by several wells in Scania (southern Sweden), with largely negative results. However, Paleozoic shales in Jylland and on Sjælland have not been tested by drilling and various lines of geological evidence suggest that significant natural gas resources may be preserved in certain tilted fault blocks in the subsurface of Denmark.
