  • Fracking North, the Debate on Hydraulic Fracturing for Gas


    Fracking North, the Debate on Hydraulic Fracturing for Gas will discuss how the advancement of fracking could contribute significantly to the UK's energy security and reduce the reliance on imported gas as the country moves to a low carbon economy.

    It will assess any potential environmental risks associated with fracking and need for the industry to consistently apply good practice, and the need for proper scrutiny and oversight of the industry to address any risks across the entire lifecycle of shale gas extraction.

    It will also provide local policy makers, regulators and financial investors with a summary of the political, economic and scientific arguments that need to be weighed up.

    What are the prospects of a similar shale gas revolution in the UK to that experienced across the Atlantic ?
    Is there too much political risk attached to investment in Fracking?
    Is Fracking shale the right approach to meeting our energy needs?

    Confirmed Speakers:

    • Dan Byles MP, Chair, All Party Parliamentary Group on Unconventional Oil & Gas
    • Tony Bosworth, Friends of the Earth
    • Dr Jim Marshall, Water UK
    • Tina Hunter, Centre for International Minerals and Energy Law
