Mike Hill on Shale Gas Regulation excerpt

Mike Hill is an independent chartered engineer based in Lytham St Annes, close to Cuadrilla Resources’ shale gas activities in West Lancashire.

Having worked as an oil & gas engineer, Hill is concerned about potential environmental damage from ‘fracking’ and has spent much of his time and money attempting to make UK authorities take the question of shale gas regulation more seriously.

In this clip, Hill says that without a post-drilling, on-site independent testing and verification regime, shale gas operators may be tempted to cut corners and thus jeopardise well integrity – vital for safe fracking operations. Interviewer: Tim Probert, October 2012.
