Critique of “The Case for Shale in the UK”: a Dodgy Dossier from Ineos

This critique is written as a background briefing to help anti-fracking groups respond to INEOS, an international chemical company who wish to frack parts of the north of England and Scotland.

This has included circulating a large amount of literature and videos in favour of fracking which purports to answer people’s worries about the processes of unconventional gas development. People who want to weigh up what the INEOS PR department has to say have a lot of work to do to just getting through it, let alone checking up on its truth and accuracy. This is what this document is for.
