UK office of unconventional gas and oil — new fracking controls
A new office within the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has been formed to oversee the exploitation of shale gas by fracking and other types of unconventional oil and gas exploitation in the UK. The announcement coincides with the launch of new controls on fracking. The only exploratory drilling operation for shale gas in the UK has been on hold after the triggering of seismic incidents by fracking activities last year.
