Shell Rushing Govt Over Fracking

TKAG believes that report that oil and gas multinational Shell is reviewing its plans for fracking outside the Americas could be a ‘Trojan horse’

The Treasure Karoo Action Group (TKAG) says reports that oil and gas multinational Shell is reviewing its plans for fracking outside the Americas could be a ‘Trojan horse’.
 
In a press statement, TKAG head, Jonathan Deal, points out that this could be a clever ploy to pressure government into speeding up shale gas exploration licences and regulations.
 
Deal also criticised President Jacob Zuma's apparent enthusiasm for fracking in his state-of-the-nation address in February last year, where he stated that shale gas could be ‘a game changer for the Karoo region and the South African economy’.
