OXFORDPROSPECT – APPG Unconventional Oil and Gas: 14th onshore licensing opens

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Unconventional Oil and Gas notes the opening of the bidding process for new licences to extract shale gas, and calls on the industry to adopt and maintain the highest standards of environmental stewardship and community engagement to help reassure the British public. The announcement of the 14th licensing round represents a significant milestone for the UK unconventional oil and gas industry and brings closer the potential for it to contribute to our energy mix. However, the APPG supports the Government’s expectation that the highest standards are observed by potential developers minimising the risk to surrounding areas. Additionally, the APPG agrees that there are important areas like National Parks that deserve to be protected from development in all but the most exceptional circumstances.
