    A pedestrian walks near a no drilling sign in Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania in this September 5, 2010 file photo. Beginning in 2014, Warsaw wants to tap an estimated 5.3 trillion cubic metres of recoverable reserves of gas - enough, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, to supply Poland with more than 300 years of its domestic energy needs. But the shale gas push is about more than energy. Poland wants to break its reliance on Russian energy and reduce Moscow's power over Europe. That is one reason why Warsaw has welcomed U.S. oil majors such as Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Conoco and Marathon, even though it risks igniting tensions with Russia.The United States produced 4.87 trillion cubic feet from shale gas in 2010, up from virtually nothing in 2000 according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The agency estimates shale gas will account for about 46 percent of U.S. natural gas production in 2035 - an encouraging sign for Poland and other eastern European nations

    Smoke billows from the chimneys of Belchatow Power Station, Europe's largest biggest coal-fired power plant in this May 7, 2009 file photo. Beginning in 2014, Warsaw wants to tap an estimated 5.3 trillion cubic metres of recoverable reserves of gas - enough, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, to supply Poland with more than 300 years of its domestic energy needs. But the shale gas push is about more than energy. Poland wants to break its reliance on Russian energy and reduce Moscow's power over Europe. That is one reason why Warsaw has welcomed U.S. oil majors such as Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Conoco and Marathon, even though it risks igniting tensions with Russia. Poland currently relies on coal for most of its energy needs; natural gas, most of it Russian, accounts for about 13 percent of its supply. That gives Poland more leverage over Russia than is sometimes apparent. To match Insight POLAND-SHALEGAS/ REUTERS/Peter Andrews/Files (POLAND - Tags: POLITICS

    The Keystone Oil Pipeline is pictured under construction in North Dakota in this undated photograph released on January 18, 2012. The Obama administration was poised on Wednesday to reject the Keystone crude oil pipeline, according to sources, a decision that would be welcomed by environmental groups but inflame the domestic energy industry.
