Regulation in the oil and gas industry
There are many myths circulating about the supposed lack of regulation in the oil and gas industry. In a Forbes article, "Shale Oil And Gas Development Is Heavily Regulated," David Blackmon confronts these false accusations head on.
Blackmon argues against Josh Fox's claim in the documentary film "Gasland" that the oil and gas industry is somehow above or exempt from federal environmental regulations. Blackmon says, "Mr. Fox continues to make this false claim – often referring to it as the Halliburton Loophole – despite it having been completely and thoroughly debunked."
Blackmon continues to discuss how anti-development groups clearly lack education about regulation within the oil and gas industry and how they perpetuate myths about regulation to the public. To read the full article, click here.
