A Resource Play is an accumulation of hydrocarbons known to exist over a large aerial expanse and/or thick vertical section which, when compared to a conventional play, typically has a lower geological and/or commercial development risk and lower average decline rate. Across North America, Resource Plays, including Gas Shale, are critical elements to sustaining the gas supply.

Unconventional natural gas has grown from 15% of U.S. production to 46% in 2006. EIA projections show that unconventional natural gas will grow to 49% of U.S. gas production by 2030. Gas Shales have an increasing role in the in the Resource Play mix. Two of the top 20 U.S. gas fields ranked by gas production are Shale Gas plays, Newark East (#2) and Antrim (#15).

Production from Gas Shale plays in 2006 exceeded 1 Tcfe (EIA, 2007), this equates to approximately 5.5% of the U.S. dry natural gas production. Gas shale production has increased over 150% since the year 2000. Most of this growth can be attributed to the Barnett Shale in the Fort Worth Basin.
