Shale Gas Projects

Shale gas is now widely recognised as a potentially game-changing energy source in certain regions of the World.

However, shale gas exploration is not without controversy. Our team of EHS regulatory lawyers, have specific and practical expertise in advising on the developing regulatory frameworks governing shale gas across Europe. We advise on issues such as the:

  • strategic planning and management of projects
  • requirements for EHS permits including mining waste permits, environmental permits and greenhouse gas permits
  • planning aspects of a project
  • need for environmental impact assessment (and its scope)
  • negotiating with regulatory authorities
  • management of NGO and security risks (including the potential for Judicial Reviews (in the English courts))
  • pre-application stage of a project
  • obtaining relevant permits and licences
  • mitigating commercial risks arising from shale developments
