Now in its 5th edition comes at the right time to provide a platform for various industry representatives to come together and discuss the environmental aspects of shale gas extraction and production.
The UK will certainly feel the impact of the shale gas revolution. It has its own shale gas resource. The question is whether the UK is to be a producer or simply an importer. The Government are committed to development of British shale. Public concern about possible environmental and health risks , most of it unfounded, together with regulatory uncertainty, have so far delayed the exploration and appraisal needed to assess the UK’s economically recoverable onshore shale gas reserves.
