Szymanski : Parliament’s proposals on shale impact assessments are a bureaucratic nightmare

“We were able to alleviate many of the provisions, but proposals adopted today by the European Parliament will be detrimental to the energy industry".

“We were able to alleviate many of the provisions, but proposals adopted today by the European Parliament will be detrimental to the energy industry. Environmental assement procedures will be even more costly and expensive, especially for the shale industry” – Says PiS MEP Konrad Szymanski, author of a number of amendments to today’s vote.

The position divided the European Parliament, with 339 MEPs in favour and 293 against, meaning the mandate by which parliament will negotiate with national governments is weak.

“The extraction of oil and gas from unconventional sources should be covered by the requirement to make a serious assessment of the impact on the environment. Such an assessment is necessary to protect against the adverse effects of environmental investments . It can play an important role in building confidence for investors”. – Commented Konrad Szymanski after the vote – “But we can not agree on a disproportionate administrative burden on these investments. They are dictated by the political Left and the Greens’ aversion to unconventional resources . If you want to take advantage of the opportunity associated with these new resources , we need better laws for gas exploration . The adoption of bad solutions may mean that Europe will be the only corner of the world where shale gas does not play any role . ”
