European unconventional gas regulations have rapidly developed as public and political reaction has evolved. Local populations, confronted with negative media coverage and with limited previous exposure to onshore oil and gas activities, have protested shale gas development. Over the last year this has led to moratoriums on fracking in France and Bulgaria. Whereas in Poland and Ukraine, strong government support has led to major exploration investment.
Following on from our previous study on the developments in in France we have written the following presentation on the response in the UK. It provides insight into the fallout from seismic activity caused by fracking, the structure of relevant environmental and financial regulations and the state of current public opposition.
