The Task Force Visits the United States

In March 2015 Lord Chris Smith and Panel Members Professor Ernest Rutter and Professor Nigel Brandon visited the United States to learn about the impacts of shale.  During their visit, they met with representatives from Government, industry, regulators, NGOs and academics. They also visited three shale gas sites: a drilling site, a hydraulic fracturing site and a production site.
