Energy Post: “Dramatic shale gas plea falls on deaf ears in Paris, but Brussels opens back door to fracking”

A report from the French Ministry of the Economy and Industrial Recovery concludes that France could have its own shale gas revolution, with hundreds of billions in revenues and hundreds of thousands of new jobs. What is more, with the help of a unique new technology, based on propane stimulation, the shale gas could be produced without harm to the environment. The report, already produced in June 2014, was, however, ignored by the French government, newspaper Le Figaro has revealed. Meanwhile, the European Commission is being accused by NGO’s Friends of the Earth and Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) that it is secretly “promoting” shale gas development in Europe.
