Shale Gas Environmental Summit

A session at Shale Gas Environmental Summit 2015

SMi is thrilled to announce that registration is now live to attend the 6th Annual Shale Gas Environmental Summit taking place on 26-27 October in London, UK.
The shale gas industry is an expanding field and could be a major industry providing thousands of jobs and growth for Britain and countries across Europe. Industry leaders and the government are all keen for this industry to begin in Britain - with oil and gas companies currently in application processes. However this industry is also highly controversial due to environmental and health concerns.
This conference will provide a balanced view of all sides of the debate surrounding the highly topical issue of shale gas. Speakers will range from the political and regulatory to land owners and NGOs and campaigners. This unique conference will also discuss the fledgling industry in Europe and will take a look at current EU regulations on shale gas.
