Last quote about Fracking

John Underhill
Both sides of the hydraulic fracturing debate assume that the geology is a 'slam dunk' and it will work if exploration drilling goes ahead… but the science shows that our country's geology is simply unsuitable for shale oil and gas production. The implication that because fracking works in the US, it must also work here is wrong. The only question that has been addressed to date is how large the shale resource is in the UK. The inherent complexity of the sedimentary basins has not been fully appreciated or articulated and, as a result, the opportunity has been overhyped.feedback

You can find on this page a variety of quotes, by one or many people, on what they said about Fracking. 140 people are quoted and you can read 174 citations of them about Fracking. Francis Egan, Bjarne Schieldrop, Elisabeth Whitebread and Fred Carlson, are those who have spoken the most about this topic. Francis Egan said: “We are very pleased to have taken delivery of the drilling rig to our shale gas exploration site. The drilling of the first horizontal exploration wells into UK shale rock will be an important milestone in unlocking a vital new source of natural gas for the country. With the decline of North Sea gas and our ever increasing reliance on gas imports, including shale gas imported from the US, developing an indigenous source of natural gas is critical for UK energy security, our economy, jobs and the environment. We are proud as a Lancashire company to be at the forefront of that effort.”.

Ellie Groves

While they congratulate themselves, we won't be distracted by today's news, and it will only strengthen everybody's resolve to keep fighting.feedback

Arfon Jones - Plaid

I was told last week there would be no further deployments after I made representations around capacity issues in North Wales and questioned how could we justify sending officers to Lancashire in those circumstances. Why should officers from North Wales be sent to police and facilitate an activity where the activity is more or less unlawful in their own country? The decision not to send any more officers from North Wales after this week may be down to a number of factors, my opposition only being one factor.feedback

Arfon Jones - Plaid

It "a danger in many respects but mainly because of potential pollution of water. I was a prominent member of Frack Free Wrexham and campaigned strongly and eventually successfully to prevent [fracking firm] IGas carrying out exploratory drilling at Borras [near Wrexham]. I was also prominent in lobbying the Welsh government to issue a moratorium over fracking in Wales, which they did, and will continue to lobby them to utilise new powers delegated to them over energy to ban fracking in line with other European countries.feedback

Francis Egan

I strongly condemn the increased illegal and aggressive behaviour of activists which has put all road users near our Preston New Road site at serious risk. The majority of these irresponsible individuals are from outside the local area and seem determined to use regular disruption to local road users, and abuse and violence towards police and security staff, as so called direct action tactics.feedback

Katrine Lawrie

They've been getting increasingly more violent and aggressive over the last few weeks and every day it seems the aggression and violence seems to ramp up. It's outright assault.feedback

Gary Higgins

Territorians have been blessed with abundant supplies of natural gas, which can form an important part of Australia's energy supply and security into the future. Despite inquiry after inquiry showing this technique can be done safely with appropriate regulation, all we get are more inquiries.feedback

Michael Gunner

We will make the best decision for the Territory – we will not put at risk existing fishing, farming, tourism and cattle jobs for the possibility of jobs from fracking.feedback

Naomi Hogan

The report makes clear that every part of the shale gas extraction process does come with risks, from the chemical transportation, to a grid of thousands of wells and pipelines, to faulty well integrity causing water contamination. The report documents a litany of concerns that have been put forward by Territory families, pastoralists and traditional owners about the impacts surrounding the fracking industry and polluting shale gasfields across the Territory.feedback

William Hawk

It's going to happen here. Your water supply is going to be destroyed and your children will have nothing to live for.feedback

Rick Guest

This is the epicentre of the fracking industry, where it's going to start. If we can stop it here, we can hopefully stop it everywhere.feedback

Jonathan Bartley

Across the world, environmental protesters, like those in Lancashire, are putting their bodies on the line. In the future we will remember them as heroes• Jonathan Bartley is co-leader of the Green party.feedback

Donald J. Trump

[W]hen I want a strong military, you know she wouldn't have spent the money on military. When I want tremendous energy, we're opening up coal, we're opening up natural gas, we're opening up fracking, all the things that he would hate, but nobody ever mentions that.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

There are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he [Putin] would want. So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think 'probably not,' because when I want a strong military, you know she wouldn't have spent the money on military. When I want tremendous energy – we're opening up coal, we're opening up natural gas, we're opening up fracking, all the things that he would hate – but nobody ever mentions that. The W.H. is functioning perfectly, focused on HealthCare, Tax Cuts/Reform & many other things. I have very little time for watching TV.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

They come here because these are good jobs where people with a high school diploma can make $100,000 a year. The women I met said they feel safe, but they had unique stories. Some told me about finding out their boyfriends had families back home. (They thanked me that Facebook has made it harder for these men to live double lives.) Another woman told me she has never paid for a drink her whole life.feedback

John Blaymires - IGAS Energy

The most important thing that you have [to do] to ensure that we do our jobs safely, environmentally responsibly, is we construct and design that well [in Nottinghamshire] to ensure the integrity. The fracking is incidental, almost, to the whole of the rest of this story.feedback

Amin Nasser

If we look at the long-term situation of oil supplies, for example, the picture is becoming increasingly worrying. Financial investors are shying away from making much needed large investments in oil exploration, long-term development and the related infrastructure. Investments in smaller increments such as shale oil will just not cut it.feedback

Francisco Blanch - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

I don't see a lot of downside below $40/$45 range. Maybe we get a little bit of a dip below but I just think the market is pretty oversupplied. Inventories are finally declining but the real issue is we need to have forward prices low enough to discourage shale. We need to see a slowdown in the fracking industry, and we just added 12 rigs which doesn't help at all.feedback

Don Beyer

There's the larger environmental issue. In a world where we need to be moving away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible, and where our energy independence is high because of fracking, do we really need to be out there drilling offshore, especially in the wake of Deepwater Horizon?feedback

John Blaymires - IGAS Energy

That is not ultimately a sustainable way if the country decides that shale gas can provide benefits in terms of security of supply, jobs, growth etc, and be done safely and be done environmentally responsibly.feedback

Michael Stephenson

It's a little bit more terrestrial in origin, so it has more woody material rather than planktonic, marine material. That means probably it's a bit less capable of yielding a lot of gas. It [the gas] is there but what we've found through recent studies in the last two years is it's quite confined to layers within the shale.feedback

Miranda Cox

When your community and family is threatened, you are often left with little choice but to take direct action. As a councillor and member of this community, I have been left with no more alternatives. I feel our way of life locally is under attack by an industry that, backed by a distant central government, is seeking to turn Fylde and Lancashire into the largest gas field in Europe. I cannot stand by and allow this mass industrialisation to happen.feedback

Gina Dowding - Lancashire

It's abundantly clear that when it comes to fracking, local councils have been rendered weak and helpless. I feel I need to be here with the community to say that we won't roll over and accept this. We are putting our bodies on the line because our voices haven't been heard.feedback

Philippe Crouzet - Vallourec

We have kept contacts with people even if they were laid off. We are calling back those former employees and training new ones. There is a race to reduce costs. This has been extremely successful. This was not calculated by oil producing countries that thought that letting the price fall from $100 to $70 a barrel would kill the activity of shale oil and gas in North America. They were completely wrong.feedback

Khalid al-Falih

In my opinion, market fundamentals are going in the right direction, but in light of the large surplus in stockpiles over the past years, the cut needs time to take effect, . Current expectations indicate the market will rebalance in the fourth quarter of this year, taking into account an increase in shale oil production. Markets determine prices but are themselves driven by unpredictable variables beyond the control of producing nations. Short-term volatility is mostly a reaction to short-term factors ... as well as the role of speculators in stock markets that increase market volatility.feedback

Dallas Salazar - Atlas Capital Group

EQT is a decade behind in fracking technology used by industry leaders in Marcellus/Utica. EQT needs a lot - and Rice offers a lot of what it needs.feedback

Gary Cohn

The price of natural gas because of the technological advances we've had in the United States, and all the fracking development in what we've done to create an abundance of natural gas, has made the price of coal less favorable today. That could change very quickly.feedback

Greg McKenna

Libyan and shale oil production seems to have occupied the mind of traders overnight. That's consistent with my sense that this is all about inventories and the associated supply overhang in crude oil markets at the moment.feedback

Anton Siluanov

On the one hand, this should keep prices at the levels they are at present, and on the other it gives a signal to those companies which are extracting shale oil, particularly in the USA, by increasing levels of drilling, by increasing the levels of extraction, and in the final reckoning by the growth of offers on the oil market. At the same it is necessary to be very attentive, it is necessary to be ready for the fact that the possible surplus offers of oil will put pressure to lower the price.feedback

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

As a consequence of the extension of the cuts, we are likely to see a more supportive oil price and yet more U.S. shale oil rigs being added to the market over the coming nine months. In our view, this is likely to flip the global supply/demand balance for 2018 and 2019 into surplus.feedback

Terry Lodge

This is a rather astonishing situation. Our governor is a rightwing Republican who is extremely pro-fracking and extremely pro-pipeline.feedback

Sushant Gupta - Wood Mackenzie

This (stocks decline) is a bit tricky as production cuts cause higher prices which will incentivize more production for the U.S. shale oil and reduce the impact of the production cuts. So it's a bit cyclical.feedback

Thomas Linzey

To expect a fully formed legal theory initially out of rights-of-nature is just ridiculous. It takes actual conflicts to build that body of law.feedback

Fred Carlson

If there's anyone who should be going along with this thing, it's me. But you have to think about the generations to come. And one of the biggest resources that this country has is clean fresh water.feedback

Chad Nicholson

The regulatory system is cooked. Its DNA does not allow communities to actually say no to things and protect their environment. Communities are then left arguing over the details of a permit granted to a corporation, but what a permit does is allow a certain amount of illegal activity to go on in the community. A permit is about negotiating the rate of destruction, not stopping it.feedback

Judy Wanchisn

We were novices. We thought someone was going to save us, but what we hadn't yet realized was that no one was going to save us but ourselves.feedback

Thomas Linzey

Our constitutional structure is an archaic suicide pact. You are looking at a system of law that elevates rights of property and commerce above the rights of communities, people and nature.feedback

William Hamilton

They started drilling without having any idea what they are going to do with the waste. To me, pumping it into the ground seems like a very foolish way to dispose of a toxic material. There are going to be gigantic, unknown and long-term consequences to this.feedback

Fred Carlson

The only reason that I can see that you gentlemen are here is that Grant Township is a very small township. We're being picked on. We're not happy with it.feedback

Blaine Lucas

PGE does not want to fight. If it goes to federal court, and I don't want to saber rattle here . . . there's a possibility the township could be required to pay our attorney fees.feedback

Susan Paradise Baxter

Although Defendant wishes it were not so, the development of oil and gas . . . is a legitimate business activity and land use within Pennsylvania.feedback

Judy Wanchisn

It was like he was talking Greek. We butted heads.feedback

Judy Wanchisn

It didn't matter if they were Democrats or Republicans. People didn't want anyone messing around with their water. They understand 'You poison my water and I don't have a home.feedback

Leila Conners

Americans are often under the belief that the EPA or their local state environmental agency is going to save them from environmental pollution, and that is simply not the case.feedback

Fred Carlson

Our ordinance is passed. You boys know where we're at. If there's a problem, go at it.feedback

Thomas Linzey

We got invited to the White House, and we met Al Gore. But all the liberal progressive community cared about was that we were enforcing existing environmental laws. No one seemed to care that the community we were fighting for still got a new toxic-waste incinerator.feedback

Majid Jafar

The key issue is actually what's happening in the U.S. The kickstart of the shale oil production there is faster than anybody thought…, you're seeing it in the rig count, you're seeing it in the cost of production, they can drill wells at a third of the cost and in a third of the time now. The key question not always in focus is China. What's really going on with their growth? Indian growth of oil demand is even faster than China's now. There needs to be a little more focus on the demand side as well to truly get a view of the overall picture.feedback

Sam Hall

While stringently regulated fracking could meet the UK's demand for gas for a couple more decades, the Conservatives' priority should be incentivising cheap renewables, which are attracting the majority of new energy investment worldwide, as part of its modern industrial strategy.feedback

Yvonne McLellan

Theresa May knows she can rely on self-interested wealthy donors and campaigners who're allowed to break the spending rules without fear of prosecution. Greens don't work that way, and we're not in the pockets of the super-rich. That's why we are targeting our resources to build on our strong support in Glasgow North and in Edinburgh North and Leith, and also build support for the case against fracking in Falkirk. Greens across Scotland will support efforts in these constituencies, offering a bold alternative to the other parties.feedback

Anthony Grisanti

While fracking has come back I don't see production from them increasing much more from these levels–banks won't finance those operations like they used to–and as the price falls some of those new wells become unprofitable once more.feedback

Tapas Strickland

In the words of ABBA, it seems U.S. shale oil production is presenting a Waterloo moment for OPEC.feedback

David Leland - Columbus

It is an end run by Republicans in the legislature to facilitate more fracking and drilling in Ohio state parks.feedback

Taylor McKinnon

The Ohio and Little Muskingum rivers provide precious water to millions of people in Ohio and downstream states. Pollution from fracking would be disastrous for the people who depend on this water.feedback

Matt Canavan

Hopefully it's a wake-up call to the states and territories to get off their backsides and develop their own resources. Where we've ended up demonstrates the folly of a lot of these policies.feedback

Mark Butler

If I had my time again, I would be arguing back then for the national interest test policy [on gas exports] that we have in place now.feedback

Francis Egan

We are very pleased that the planning inspector's recommendation and the secretary of state's decision to grant planning consent has been upheld by the high court. We respected the democratic right of those opposed to this consent to challenge the secretary of state's decision.feedback

Francis Egan

We respected the democratic right of those opposed to this consent to challenge the Secretary of State's decision. However we always remained confident that the planning consent would stand, particularly after such a lengthy and thorough review of the application and positive recommendations for approval by both the professional planning officers at Lancashire County Council and subsequently an experienced planning inspector. These could include debt and equity markets as well of course as further funding from our current shareholders.feedback

Claire Stephenson

Justice and democracy have not been observed in Lancashire. We are truly dismayed at this decision.feedback

Elisabeth Whitebread

Ordinary members of the community have been peacefully opposing fracking for six years and they won't stop now.feedback

Michelle McGrade

There are some conflicting forces out there. There's OPEC and there's U.S. shale gas and oil. U.S. is making shale oil like crazy and therefore the supply is greater than demand.feedback

Leslie Lewis

We were always for mediation. We had to go to trial because we couldn't get a fair decision. The court was highly critical of me. At Cabot's request, the court excluded critical, relevant evidence, inextricably linked to the facts and claims in this civil matter.feedback

Ted Thomas

You want to know how you bring the coal jobs back? Ban fracking. The chief economist of the Heritage Foundation, Steven Moore, was trying to articulate the position that the problem with coal was Obama regulations, and not gas. When you talk to utility professionals, they're more of them who think Elvis is still alive than believe that. That shouldn't be in the policy discussion–much less the leading voice.feedback

Alexander Novak

It's clear that we are all assessing the situation in a sober fashion, we understand that there will be a rise in the production of shale oil … Again I want to say that we need to look at the situation as a whole throughout the world.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Repealing environmental regulations will create all sorts of new jobs: oil refining, fracking, clean water historian, keeper of the last six bees.feedback

Andy McConn - Wood Mackenzie

Oil futures prices must recover before producers can lock in prices over US$55 a barrel for next year, which is what we think is needed to organically fund significant (shale) oil production growth.feedback

Ann Bristow

This vote confirms the power of participant democracy. Never believe when someone tells you that an organized movement can't produce change against overwhelming odds. We are proving otherwise.feedback

Dennis Gartman

This slump is very real ... Fracking has only just begun here in the U.S. and it will be transferred swiftly to other countries abroad, so the supply of crude oil is going to increase rather dramatically in the years to come.feedback

Jeremy Baker

Global demand for 2017 is expected to remain healthy and surpass long-term average growth in demand of 1.2 million barrels per day by between 0.2 and 0.4 million barrels per day. As such, the combination of robust demand and weaker global supply leading to rebalanced markets will not be de-railed by U.S. shale oil.feedback

Paul G. Pinsky

Taking a stance is crucial. There's an old phrase, Dare to struggle, dare to win,' and I think that applies today. Keep up the struggle.feedback

Mike Tidwell - Climate Action Network

We cannot love God with all our heart if we destroy God's creation … nor can we frack and love our neighbor as ourselves.feedback

Michael Saul

Backing away from these modest rules is doubly dangerous given the administration's reckless plans to ramp up fracking and drilling on public lands across America. Federal rules are critical because state rules in places like Oklahoma have been appallingly slow to confront air pollution, man-made earthquakes and other serious harms caused by oil companies.feedback

Sajid Javid

There will be no assessment of these greenhouse gas emissions arising from the gas being pumped through the gas grid to homes and industry.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

In Victoria, where there is a huge amount of gas, and, indeed, there is still a very large offshore gas resource in Bass Strait, but there is also an enormous amount of gas onshore that can be accessed by conventional means, without fracking. I can say that the gas companies - I have no doubt - are very well aware they operate with the benefit of a social licence from the Australian people and they cannot expect to maintain that if while billions of dollars of gas are being exported, Australians are left short.feedback

Judy Stone

Despite the claims in the All Opinions Are Local blog post “Opposition to fracking in Maryland is anti-science” by Thomas Wheatley, most of the more than 900 peer-reviewed studies on hyrdaulic fracturing, known as fracking, confirm increased risks to our health and the environment from fracking. A University of Maryland study in 2014 emphasizes increased health risks, especially to vulnerable children and elderly or others with weakened immune systems.feedback

Clive Grunshaw

It is hard to say how much it has cost, but the bill already goes into the hundreds of thousands of pounds and will go into the millions. The strain on officers is already immense. These officers are going on shift to be abused and being portrayed as the enemy when they really are not. These are Lancashire officers who live and work in the local community and who are at the site instead of dealing with domestic violence or antisocial behaviour and keeping people safe. This is just the tip of the iceberg at the moment.feedback

Jason C. Buckel

We're poor – we're very, very poor. A chance for someone to get a thirty- or forty- or fifty- or sixty-thousand-dollar-a-year job driving a truck might make a little bit of difference in that.feedback

Wendell Beitzel

There's not a gas or oil company in the world that would want to come in there and drill.feedback

Mike Tidwell - Climate Action Network

If Joan Carter Conway declared today that she too supports a ban, then it's going to go to Hogan's desk, because not only will we have her vote, but several people have said they'll support it if she does.feedback

Thomas Wheatley

For state Sen. Robert Zirkin (D-Baltimore County), the dangers of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) are so patently obvious that the question itself is pointless to discuss. “This is not one of those issues that lends itself to that debate, ” said Zirkin at an anti-fracking rally in Annapolis on Tuesday. “This is a public health issue, pure and simple.”.feedback

Robert Laycock

Our holiday cottage business, Flamingoland, Castle Howard and all the other tourist businesses in this area, will all be affected by that [fracking]. He says 'please go away' – we are not going to go away, we live here.feedback

John Dewar

Please go away. We respect their right to protest but they should respect our right to operate.feedback

Ash Hewitson

By taking out the links in the chain we can break the whole industry into pieces.feedback

Francis Egan

I think it is irresponsible because people have a right to go about their day to day work. Your right to protest shouldn't be allowed to supersede some business's right to do business with us.feedback

Barbara Richardson

Cuadrilla are out to exaggerate and make protesters out to be far more aggressive than they are. Yesterday there were six police vans, and every time a van came [to and from the site], 50 officers came out to surround them.feedback

Francis Egan

There's verbal abuse. They swear at people. One guy [a Cuadrilla worker] had a death threat which he reported to police. You don't think someone's going to follow it through, but it's indicative of how strongly they're feeling. They shout things like 'you mustn't have children because you wouldn't do this if you had children', how can you live with yourself.feedback

Qani Rredhi

Since 2010 we have suffered earthquake tremors of high intensity at various times, usually at night, even 30 quakes a day.feedback

Eugen Weinberg - Commerzbank

OPEC must at some point recognize and understand that they are no more the marginal producers and marginal production will be coming from shale oil so prices will come under massive pressure during this year once investors recognize oil supplies are not going to disappear. The world is awash with oil at the moment and there continues to be endless supply so therefore I don't see a real reason for prices to rise above $60 or $70…so I'm really seeing probably the risks of the prices falling below $50 for a considerable period of time and probably even touching the levels of $40 to $45 this year.feedback

Dave Ernsberger - S&P Global

There is the shadow looming of new supply coming to market not just from Iran but also from the U.S. and what we're looking at heading into the second quarter is when will that oil come to market and will it begin to take the edge off prices a little bit. One cargo of shale oil is not like another and you don't really know what is going to happen when you put it through your refinery until it lands at your port and that's a little more uncertainty that even the oil refinery industry - which is used to uncertainty - is really willing to embrace right now.feedback

Paul Wheelhouse

The debate on the future of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland has proven both complex and controversial. It is also an issue that has stimulated intense discussion, motivated by deeply held and sincere views on all sides. The Scottish Government has sought to present impartial, independent information on unconventional oil and gas in order to encourage informed dialogue and debate. This consultation does not set out or advocate a preferred Scottish Government position or policy. Instead, we want to create space for dialogue and allow different perspectives to come forward.feedback

Thomas Pugh - Capital Economics

At the end of the day, U.S. shale oil drilling will depend on the prevailing market prices and there's not much Trump can do about that.feedback

Ian Simm

Trump is very keen on bringing more economic growth back to the United States. More industrial activity is very good for companies that are solving environmental problems, (including) cleaning up the water supply from fracking water, air quality and pollution.feedback

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

I expect the U.S. shale oil will go back to increasing production this year.feedback

Chad Warmington

The commission isn't concerned about it, but wants to give guidelines to make sure they don't grow in magnitude. They're taking it as a proactive approach to this new emerging formation in the SCOOP and STACK.feedback

Jackie Cray

I'm obviously disappointed in the verdict but it doesn't end here. There is no support in North Yorkshire for this risky industry. We will continue to campaign on behalf of local communities for the sake of our children and their children's health and well-being and the long-term prosperity of our area. We are not prepared for Ryedale to become a sacrifice zone for the sake of industry greed.feedback

Donna Hume

The High Court has ruled that fracking can go ahead in beautiful Yorkshire, and we must rise to this latest challenge. The judge found that North Yorkshire councillors had assessed the impacts of climate change.feedback

Thomas Burke

The value of high-quality science has never been more important in helping to guide decisions around our nation's fragile water resources. EPA's assessment provides the scientific foundation for local decision makers, industry, and communities that are looking to protect public health and drinking water resources and make more informed decisions about hydraulic fracturing activities.feedback

John Noel

We are glad EPA resisted oil and gas industry spin, followed the science and delivered the facts. EPA must take action to address these threats now.feedback

Erik Milito

The agency has walked away from nearly a thousand sources of information from ... technical reports and peer-reviewed scientific reports demonstrating that ... hydraulic fracturing does not lead to widespread, systemic impacts to drinking water resources.feedback

Thomas Burke

Data gaps did not allow us to quantify how widespread the impacts are.feedback

Erik Milito

We look forward to working with the new administration (of President-elect Donald Trump) to instill fact-based science back into the public policy process.feedback

Amy Mall

With a new administration coming in, this underscores the need for action at the federal level. Now, more than ever, states and communities must use their power to guard against these very real risks.feedback

Katie Brown

If fracking were a major threat to drinking water supplies, the data gathered by EPA would show it. But they don't.feedback

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

OPEC knows this dynamic. As such they have been quite clever by only pledging a cut lasting six months to begin with. This tightens up the front end of the market. OPEC would prefer though not to lift forward prices further out on the curve. They don't want to offer shale oil producers a free lunch with the possibility of a guaranteed, high profitability for new projects through a high forward price.feedback

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

OPEC is putting U.S. shale oil to the test... (and) we will truly see what it can deliver.feedback

Harold Hamm

We could take it from 10 [million barrels a day] to 20 [million]. The key here is not to get too much production coming back in – oversupply the market – or prices collapse and that's not a good deal for everybody. We have that potential in this country. That's what's available here. It needs to be done in a very systematic way.feedback

Peter Thorne

We suggested that they provide a definition of 'systemic,' a definition of 'widespread' and then provide quantitative data to support the conclusion. That is all a way of asking them to put that kind of scientific rigor behind a statement as broad as that.feedback

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

We are seeing shale oil at around $60 or so, for a big chunk of it to be profitable, and we may well see it come to the market and provide more oil to the markets.feedback

Rick Shearer

Our customers are talking about actually adding some crews even in Q4 and certainly adding crews into Q1 2017. We're very bullish, going forward, that our volumes and our pricing will continue to build.feedback

Charles Foote - Credit Suisse Group

It's a good little pocket of positive activity, but I don't think you can extrapolate it much.feedback

Patrick Pouyanne - Total

I know that the shale oil industry is very innovative and they have cut costs and adapt but we won't be able, if we continue this way, to fill the gap.feedback

Igor Sechin - Rosneft

The Americans want it most ($US50 per barrel) as the shale oil projects become profitable with such a price. And $US60 (per barrel) will result in more shale oil projects.feedback

Hillary Clinton

So by the time we get through all of my conditions, I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place.feedback

Helen Rimmer

Instead of shoving us down a dangerous path that inevitably leads to climate change, the government should invest in renewables and energy efficiency.feedback

Francis Egan

We are very pleased that we can now move ahead with our shale gas exploration plans which will start to create new economic growth opportunities and jobs for people in Lancashire and the UK. As a Lancashire business we are proud that the County will play such a vital role in securing vitally needed home sourced energy.feedback

Hillary Clinton

There will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place.feedback

Tetsu Emori

Even if there were no output deal at the informal talks, oil may not fall and could stay around $45 (a barrel) as shale oil production is not growing.feedback

Catherine Reheis-Boyd

Hydraulic fracturing and other well stimulation treatments in California have undergone rigorous analysis and review, culminating in the most stringent environmental standards nationwide.feedback

Brendan Cummings

This is a huge victory in the fight to protect our water and wildlife from fracking pollution and dangerous drilling. The Obama administration must get the message and end this reckless rush to auction off our public land to oil companies. As California struggles against drought and climate change, we've got to end fracking and leave this dirty oil in the ground.feedback

John Bradley

This ban ... will have nationwide impacts for Australia's energy system.feedback

Malcolm Roberts

The decision today is short-term politics that will leave Victoria exposed to unnecessarily high energy prices.feedback

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We believe the announcement alleviates a significant uncertainty overhang for E&Ps leveraged to the DJ Basin.feedback

Diana Best - Greenpeace

Despite the countless hours and the thousands of Coloradans who spoke in support of protecting the health and safety of Colorado communities, the movement faced an unprecedented flow of money from the oil and gas opposition that felt the need to spent $15 million to defeat us. We may be disappointed today, but tomorrow we get back to work empowering communities and keeping fossil fuels in the ground. This fight is far from over.feedback

Karen Crummy

Colorado voters recognized that these extreme measures would destroy the state's economy and take away private property rights. The voters read the petitions and declined to sign.feedback

Karen Crummy

We are confident that Coloradans will see these measures for what they are: a backdoor fracking ban that would be economically devastating for our state.feedback

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We continue to believe the worst-case scenario, the passage of Initiative 78, affecting up to 90 percent of the state's acreage, is a less likely event. However, we reiterate that the low-probability, potentially high-impact risk warrants concern. We believe this uncertainty overhang could affect E&Ps leveraged to the DJ Basin, especially in urban areas, continuing until Election Day should the initiatives officially make the ballot.feedback

Lauren Petrie - Food & Water Watch

This is a good day for Colorado, and it's a good day for democracy. These initiatives will give communities political tools to fend off the oil and gas industry's effort to convert our neighborhoods to industrial sites. This is a significant moment in the national movement to stem the tide of fracking and natural gas.feedback

Lisa Trope - Food & Water Watch

We made it over the hurdle of having the signatures needed to turn into the Secretary of State and now it's in their hands to go through the validation process.feedback

David Deckelbaum - KeyBanc Capital Markets

Given catastrophic implications for these companies, certain downside persists, though given limited likelihood that initiatives pass based on rational behavior, we would expect rally relief to ensue.feedback

David Tameron - Wells Fargo Securities

There's obvious avenues that people would pursue and they would try to get an injunction or try to fight it on the grounds that it's unconstitutional.feedback

David Tameron - Wells Fargo Securities

The energy industry is very concerned. Essentially, it would grind drilling development to a halt in the state.feedback

David Deckelbaum - KeyBanc Capital Markets

This is an issue where the bar for getting something on the ballot in Colorado is low.feedback

John Christiansen - Anadarko Petroleum

This is bigger than any individual company, as these potential ballot measures would carry massive consequences for Colorado's economy, public education, public services and every consumer.feedback

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We see the worst-case-scenario (Initiative 78 being approved and passed) as a very low probability but because of the rapid transformation of Colorado's electorate and unprecedented nature of November's election, we believe that the low-probability high-impact risk event warrants investor concern until it can be ruled out.feedback

Bill Thomas - EOG Resources

The benefits of EOG's premium drilling strategy are beginning to show in our operating performance. We are committed to focusing capital on our premium assets which we are confident will increasingly lead to break-out performance as prices improve.feedback

Harold Hamm

Hillary Clinton would eliminate fossil fuel development in America, she would kill jobs, drive up gasoline prices and increase oil imports from our enemies. President Trump will release America's pent-up energy potential, get rid of foreign oil, trash punitive regulations, create millions of jobs, and develop our most strategic geopolitical weapon: crude oil.feedback

Sara Rasmussen

Residents of communities undergoing (fracking) and those nearby can be exposed to noise, light, vibration, heavy truck traffic, air pollution, social disruption and anxiety.feedback

Daisy Sands - Greenpeace

Theresa May should not be under the illusion that fracking is the answer to the UK's energy needs.feedback

Kassie Siegel

The Bureau of Land Management clearly has the authority not only to set this weak rule on fracking but to take the much stronger actions needed to truly protect our public lands.feedback

Ryan Sitton

This ruling sends a broad signal about who really does have the jurisdictional authority to regulate this area.feedback

Lynn Helms

This ruling protects private and state-owned minerals from being subjected to unauthorized federal rules.feedback

Cynthia Lummis

This rule undermined the careful and efficient regulation of fracturing that states have put in place, like the rules written by Wyoming.feedback

Gene McCowan

We would like to see more drilling. But we are caught in a bind because people are concerned about fracking and how that will affect the earth and water.feedback

Kevin Cramer

The real opportunity for prosperity in this country has been to produce more because you have access to more markets. The last thing we need is more rules. One-third of refining capacity is owned by OPEC countries. How does this fit into his (Trump's) America first policy?feedback

Bernie Sanders

What we are trying to do in this campaign is to differentiate our positions from Secretary Clinton on the war in Iraq, on fracking, on how we raise money. That is what the American people want to hear. And by the way, one other point, Chuck: I would hope very much that as we go into New York State, Secretary Clinton's home state, that we will have a debate.feedback

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

There is thus an increasing risk that the steep decline in U.S. shale oil rigs we have seen for weeks now may soon come to an end show an uptick rather than a further decline in a week or two.feedback

Igor Sechin - Rosneft

Shale oil production has its limitations in scope and time ... U.S. shale oil production will reach its peak in 2020.feedback

Thomas Porcher

What you should know is that the bigger the oil price decline the greater the rebound effect (ie the rise in prices). Because today with extremely low oil prices, investment in non-conventional oil, shale oil, is no longer profitable.feedback

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

Due to the limited resource base (of US shale oil), it is going to plateau and decline. After 2020 there will be a major dominance of Middle East oil.feedback

Michael Hewson - CMC Markets

We're in a bit of a price war at the moment, we've got more supply then we've got demand, and I think this is in part a ploy by Saudi Arabia to I think squeeze the shale oil revolution and US producers more than anything else, but at some point I think we could well hit a floor and that floor is probably around the $80 a barrel mark.feedback

José Bové

I don't feel I've sold my soul to the devil. I'm here where decisions are taken, I'm here to take part. I'm not turning my back on battles in the field, which are also important for me. At the moment, for example, I'm fighting multinational shale oil prospectors. It's crazy to let them do that. For me it's essential to go into battle locally, but also to mobilise at a European level and internationally.feedback

Zbigniew Krezel

People say different things: 'The water will turn yellow'… 'The hens will lay no more eggs'… but I don't know if this is true or not.feedback

Czeslawa Kulbaka

There will be irreversible changes underground because this technique will create fractures. The concrete surrounding the pipes won't last forever so the local water supply will be contaminated.feedback

Jean-Francois Lalfert

There are already cases of cancer, there are already cases of poisoning. It's been seen in the United States, it's been seen in Canada, in Germany, in Poland, it's been seen wherever shale gas has been extracted from the bedrock. Hydrocarbons which are extracted from the bedrock. All around there is damage to health. It's not worth digging these wells if you're going to make people sick.feedback

Magdalena Piatkowska

Our well is designed in a way which protects underground water against any possible pollution from drilling fluid or in the future against gas which could migrate to the surface. Each casing set is cemented to the surface and I can promise that there is no possibility that gas or drilling fluid reach a point where there is a contact with underground water.feedback

Karol Kaszczuk

They say that no chemicals will be used. Yet we know that the shale gas is extracted by injecting chemicals and can be dangerous for the environment.feedback

Jozef Siwek

We like the fact that we have found gas here in Syczyn. Maybe more jobs will be created for our children.feedback

Alicja Struszewska

Most people in the village are in favour of exploiting the shale gas. The village and the community have said yes.feedback

Wojciech Swieton

It is a good time for us at the moment, because shale gas is more popular than before and I hope we keep going.feedback
