first_imgHydraulic Fracturing, or ‘Fracking’, will be the subject of an in-depth information meeting and discussion at the Abbey Centre in Ballyshannon on Monday week, October 17th, starting at 8pm.Members of the public are invited to come and hear the opinions of a panel of experts who will outline what Fracking means, and how it is beginning to have a very real presence here in the North West.Special guest speaker Dr. Aedin Mc Loughlin B.Sc. Ph.D. will present “Shale Gas Extraction, Boom or Bust?” informing you of the benefits and also the risks of Hydraulic Fracturing. In addition, a number of other guest speakers will outline how Fracking – a process for extracting gas reserves from areas lying deep underground – can have serious environmental implications, and how this process of extraction, banned in some other countries, is under active consideration in this part of Ireland.For example, are you aware that the Irish Government has given exploration licenses to 3 companies for shale gas exploration in the North West?Fracking is becoming a major topic of discussion here in the North West, and while politicians at both a local and national level are coming under pressure to give serious consideration to multinational companies to exploit gas reserves in the region, this public information meeting will present the facts in a clear and unambiguous way.The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session, and refreshments will also be served.
