9:00 Registration 
10:00 Opening remarks
Mr. Zbigniew Pisarski, President of the Board, Casmir Pulaski Foundation
10:15 Panel I Geopolitics

Poland is inevitably becoming the newest competitor on the natural gas market in Europe. Could the exploitation of shale gas possibly constitute an energy independent Poland? Could shale wealth alter Poland’s role in the European Union? What impact can the commercial exploitation of shale have on Poland’s long term energy policy?
Mr. Zbigniew Pisarski, President of the Board, Casmir Pulaski
Mr. Angel Angelov, Economic and Commercial Counselor, Embassy of Bulgaria

11:45 Coffee break 
12:00 Panel II Economics
While several member states have been critically affected by the financial crisis in Europe, Poland proved to be economically stable and is modernizing steadily. How profitable can shale exploitation really be for Poland? Could shale gas equal a social welfare state? Could future taxation and regulatory policies on shale gas prove to be a lifeline?

14:15 Panel III Technology
Poland’s shale reserves may be smaller than earlier estimates presumed. How credible are these current estimates regarding shale basins? What is the difference between the amount of shale gas available and the amount that can be exploited? Which technologies would be most effective considering Poland’s environmental conditions but would be more costly?
