dc.description.abstractThis chapter evaluates the consistency of the United Kingdom (UK) regulatory framework on shale gas with Commission Recommendation 2014/70/EU on minimum principles for the exploration and production of unconventional oil and gas. In the absence of European-wide legislation, European Union (EU) Member States have the right to determine the conditions for exploiting their unconventional energy sources. However, due to the environmental and human health risks associated with hydraulic fracturing, the EU has expressed its interest in ensuring adequate protection of the environment and to creating clear and transparent common standards for the benefit of operators, investors and the public while promoting the interests of those Member States which are currently exploring unconventional energy. It can be argued that the UK regime has been designed to address the environmental risks arising from hydraulic fracturing operations and as such it sets a high environmental threshold for operations. In fact, the UK legislation appears to be more comprehensive than in many other jurisdictions commercially exploiting shale gas, and therefore it has a potential to inform the content of any future harmonising measures on the exploration and extraction of such resources at the EU level.en_US
