EU Commission Publishes Study on Shale Gas

The European Commission published on 27 January 2012 a study on the licensing and permitting procedures for shale gas project.

One of the central conclusions of the report is that, based on the study of four Member States (France, Germany, Poland and Sweden), there is "no significant gaps in coverage in the  current EU legislative framework, at least for regulating the current level of shale gas activities."

The Report on unconventional gas in Europe is available here.
