UEDIN Press Release - Scientists assess fracking risks

Scientists assess fracking risks


The risks associated with shale gas recovery by fracking are to be assessed in a new project by EU scientists.


Researchers will examine various aspects of the technique, as a contribution towards the development of new European regulations.


Experts say existing regulations for oil and gas recovery are not suited to fracking. Regulations specific to the emerging technology should be developed, they add.
