Other promised land it's a movie about the oil fracking controversy in America and it was not a promising of the box office this weekend it actually came -- -- place.
So the topic of fracking remains in the spotlight an aggressive study by the EPA on Nat gas drilling -- potential contamination.
Nothing praise from both the energy industry and environmentalists.
-- out -- that's Chris popular brightly and oil and gas Chris.
Movie is side of the reviews of the actual film making or were fairly negative for.
This debate and this EPA study -- -- get the full study until 2014.
Right how do you continue to get the message out that you say the fracking is say.
When the environmentalists and now Hollywood are going after.
Well we can do is industries continue to be transparent continue having conversations at a community level at a local level engaging stakeholders not just our employees.
But also stakeholders -- in the public.
I didn't know what we're doing how we're protecting the ground water.
How the process works and that conversation but have -- -- the making headway in this argument I think that the idea ground water contamination.
Is not as prevalent as it used to be say two years ago.
What we -- in June of 2012.
Production hi this is EIA numbers yes.
Production high for natural gas what we're saying is Moody's predicting that oil and Nat gas prices are actually gonna been building in 2013.
These are positives for your industry they aren't they -- but at feet -- that -- one piece of water contamination slash -- -- those words even mentioned again in the sense tenants.
You're gonna be hit with this PR -- again.
I think what we're dealing with -- industry's concerns that if this study is is put out -- there's any kind of inclination that -- some contamination.
That regulation is going to occur at a federal level are you -- state level but duplicative regulation it's gonna have cost the whole process.
I don't -- about.
I'm not worried about it no I think as an industry we we have all we have signs on our our side we have the evidence in the proof that determinations on the current.
The EPA's done initial studies in October 2000 -- gathered water samples from -- and stream from from wells.
And it took no action no action was necessary -- I really think the study.
I hope is going to be the last piece that we need to stand on and say look this is not a current if you fall this procedures need all the process -- -- supposed to be.
Then the process is -- a fun way to use fracking.
In embrace the technology.
Because it's only good thing to come and that's not how do we stop the whole thing would -- -- make sure -- we're doing is safe -- we -- -- The chances that water could be contaminated by the fracking process.
But your critics are gonna say we've got cows -- in and taxes and look at what's happened -- this farm in Oklahoma and people are getting cancer and Indiana what do you what do you say -- that mean this is your battle.
Absolutely it's our battle that's not gonna go away when report when he fourteen comes out -- report comes out it says there's no contamination.
And the critics are gonna say that the EPA got it wrong.
If they do say this contamination.
The the creditors say we told -- -- -- there's really no winning the battle I don't think it's ever going to end.
Earthquakes dad's house all of these things are gonna blame on us those is -- the battles were gonna.
Have to fight 95%.
Of domestic natural gas 95% this practice practice -- -- -- -- -- Chris Riley it's always good to see you talked about this topic and we're gonna sure talk again that -- absolutely Chris filing thank you very much --
