In October 2014, an independent panel was appointed by the Minister of Natural Resources, Government of
Newfoundland and Labrador, to conduct a public review of the socio-economic and environmental implications of hydraulic fracturing in Western Newfoundland. The mandate of the panel was also to make recommendations on whether or not hydraulic fracturing should be undertaken in Western Newfoundland.
In this presentation, Dr. Ray Gosine, chair of the Independent Public Panel, provides an overview of hydraulic fracturing operations in the context of Western Newfoundland, discusses the review process developed by the panel and presents the 2016 findings of the panel and its recommendations to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
