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.

exploring how to minimise environmental impacts, such as the
treatment of waste water from drilling operations, noise pollution
and traffic management, to local communicates.
