Saturday, August 27th, 2011

On August 11,  the Natural Gas Subcommittee issued its 90-day interim report of “Improving the Safety & Environmental Performance of Hydraulic Fracturing.”  The Subcommittee’s 180-day final report is expected on November 18, 2011. There is still time to comment.

I have not read the report yet. If there is interest, I may do so and post my analysis here. Anybody is welcome to provide their opinions and analyses on this blog either before or after I do so. I stand ready to assist clients file formal comments with DOE or understand the economic and policy implications of this report.
