The Scottish Government is inviting views from the public on the future of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland. This includes hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” and coal bed methane extraction.
The consultation Talking “fracking” will run until 31 May 2017 and can be viewed on the Scottish Government’s consultation website: http://consult.scotland.gov.uk
A dedicated website www.talkingfracking.scot has been created for the duration of the consultation that will provide user-friendly information on unconventional oil and gas and the findings of the research commissioned by the Scottish Government. Discussion tool-kits have also been created to help communities and other groups participate in the consultation.
