Hydraulic fracturing in the shale gas industry: a group of independent experts spotlights Louisiana’s good practices

Last week, the State Review of Oil and Natural Gas Environmental Regulations (STRONGER), published a report on its examination of government programs that regulate hydraulic fracturing used in shale gas well drilling. The organization concluded that Louisiana and its regulatory bodies stood out for their well-managed programs across the entire state.

Louisiana joins a list of states whose work has already been singled out by STRONGER, including Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

STRONGER is a nonprofit organization that brings together key industry stakeholders, federal agencies such as the United States Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency, and environmental groups like the Oil and Gas Accountability Project.
