Community Considerations

1. What are your views on the potential social, community and health impacts of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?

What are your views on the potential social, community and health impacts of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?
I am appalled that this method is being considered. I believe it is only going to benefit business, especially Ineos who were granted a substantial amount of areas many years ago, all across central belt and too many within populated areas. There are reports showing the dangers of fractionation and we do not yet have enough long term knowledge against which to make sound judgment that it is safe. I myself work within the Oil & Gas Industry, and I have been made aware of some of the dangers given by colleagues form the United States.
