In my professional judgement ( 40+ years in the gas business) NB has missed the shale gas boat. However my brief paper discusses the significant risks the Commission needs to address if shale gas development is again considered in the future.
I am also providing a UK Institute of Directors (IoD) report (Getting shale gas working) that was prepared after the UK lifted its shale gas/fracking moratorium in 2012 that hopefully better explains the hurdles that any shale gas development in NB must overcome.
Thus hopefully there are two files attached.
Respectfully submitted for consideration.
