One Year On: The Changing Debate Around Shale Gas

5 July 2011 - 9:30am to 11:00am

Chatham House, London


Florence Gény, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, and Statoil



The House of Commons Select Committee on Energy and Climate Change recently appeared to give shale gas operations a clean bill of health. This roundtable discussion will consider whether this decision was premature, given that a recent Cornell University study implies that shale gas operations are worse than coal in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. As a number of other assessments continue in the United States and Europe, Florence Gény will discuss some of the emerging issues around shale gas.
