IGEM joins as partner for UK Onshore Oil & Gas Conference

We are pleased to announce that IGEM has joined the UK Onshore Oil & Gas Conference 2017 as a partner.

A landmark government ruling has approved plans for horizontal drilling for onshore shale gas to take place in the UK. The legal bill for the County Council has been reported in excess of £300,000 with councillors critical of the government decision to uphold the industry appeal, saying it over-ruled local democracy, having previously refused permission for extraction.

UK Onshore Oil and Gas: Policy, Planning and Future Developments has been designed to give help, guidance and support to the public sector to ensure delegates attending have the right and most accurate information on onshore oil and gas and environmental planning. The conference will be looking future projects that are due to commence in the next 12 months along with exploring how to minimise environmental impacts, such as the treatment of waste water from drilling operations, noise pollution and traffic management, to local communicates.
