In September, The Government Accountability Office issued a report requested by the U.S. Congress about hydraulic fracturing, Oil and Gas: Information on Shale Resources, Development, and Environmental and Public Health Risks. The report cites Si2’s report on the subject several times as it takes a look at the size of U.S. shale gas resources and the range of environmental and public health risks associated with their development.

MARCH 8, 2012: Si2 and the IRRC Institute today released “Discovering Shale Gas: An Investor Guide to Hydraulic Fracturing.” The report provides an in-depth look at the environmental and social impacts of shale gas development, identifies key questions for investors and includes 10 company profiles. An expert panel representing industry, environmental groups and investor activists provided input to the report.
An audio copy of the webinar, featuring report author Susan Williams, IRRCI executive director Jon Lukomnik and Si2 executive director Heidi Welsh, will be available soon.
