As one of its market expansion strategy, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has installed the SPAR platform at the Lucius field in the Gulf of Mexico. British Petroleum (BP) has established a separate business unit for the U.S. market to strengthen the countries shale oil and gas business. 
The global shale gas market is segmented based on technology, application and geography. Based on technology, the market is further divided into horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracturing and water usage issue. Based on application, the market is further segmented into industrial, power generation, commercial, residential and transportation. Among all, shale gas is widely used in the industrial and power generation application. Based on geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and LAMEA. U.S. dominates the global market in terms of production and revenue as well.
