QOGA Applauds Release of New Guiding Principles for Hydraulic Fracturing

The Quebec Oil and Gas Association (QOGA) today welcomed the release of “Guiding Principles for Hydraulic Fracturing” by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), said Stéphane Gosselin, QOGA’s executive director.

“QOGA supports CAPP’s proactive step of compiling these industry guidelines. The commitments demonstrate the openness QOGA values and encourages,” said Mr. Gosselin. “CAPP’s guidelines will influence our own, made-in-Quebec principles for industry in the coming months.”

“Quebecers should rest assured that we are listening to their concerns and want a two-way dialogue between citizens and industry,” Mr. Gosselin added. “QOGA’s members support disclosure of fracturing fluids and water usage and are committed to operating in an environmentally safe manner. These principles are in-line with the kind of commitment that QOGA will make to ensure that future development is done responsibly and with the highest standards of safety.”
