The work presents the status of works over the gas exploration from unconventional accumulations in Poland as of the 4th of January 2016. Both the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of waste generated during the exploration for hydrocarbons from unconventional accumulations (data for the years 2010–2014) are presented in the paper. Due to the high content of water and the consistency of waste as well as its changeable and hard-to-predict chemical composition, the waste is difficult to manage. Possible manners of the management of drilling waste connected with the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons from unconventional accumulations in Poland and logistic al challenges related to it are also discussed in the paper.
