Last quote about Fracking

Mohammad bin Salman
We are on track in 2018... but the listing (details) are still under discussion. It will be IPO-ed in 2018. Aramco would prove itself on the ground on the day of the IPO. Actually when I talked about the valuation, I talk about $2 trillion, it could be more than $2 trillion. The idea is not to restructure the economy as much as to seize the opportunities available that we didn't address before. I think now the oil market swallowed the shale oil supply, now we are regaining things

Jackie Brookes

I thought it was petty bullying, telling us that we could be crushed by that tower when we know darn well it's as strong as it can be. Eddie wouldn't be up there if he thought it was going to fall down. So it's just another way of pushing us around, it's bullying

Nicola Sturgeon

Fracking is being banned in Scotland, end of story. I don't think that position could be any

Paul Wheelhouse

It is our responsibility as a government to make a decision we believe is in the best interests of the people of this country as a whole. We must be confident that the choices we make will not compromise health and safety or damage the environment in which we live. We have a moral responsibility to tackle climate change and an economic responsibility to prepare Scotland for new low carbon

Paul Wheelhouse

The Scottish Government has a moral responsibility to tackle climate change and an economic responsibility to prepare Scotland for new low carbon opportunities. Taking full account of the available evidence and strength of public opinion today, my judgment is that Scotland should say no to

Paul Wheelhouse

There is no social licence for unconventional oil and gas to be taken forward at this time, and the research we have conducted does not provide a strong enough basis from which to adequately address those communities'

With all our nearest neighbours having banned or halted fracking, our government is increasingly out on a limb in pursuing it in

Stuart Haszeldine

The consultation replies from citizens shows they are very clearly prepared to forgo the doubtful possibility of short-term financial gain for the longer-term benefits of moving to a cleaner economy and air quality. This is continuing the decline of fossil fuels, and moving to a different sort of

It swallows up a lot of free time, it's so important to get involved, [but] you do make sacrifices. You sacrifice spending time with your family, spending time at work. It affects you financially, your relationships. Wherever this industry takes hold, it meets

Bob Dudley - BP

The start of production from Khazzan, BP's sixth and largest major project start-up so far this year, is an important milestone in our strategic partnership with Oman. With further development already planned, this giant field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come. Khazzan further demonstrates BP's ability to consistently deliver large, complex projects on schedule and within budget while applying the industry-leading skills and technology we've developed

Christine Hughes

Roy Thompson

The UK urgently needs a bold energy transition plan, instead of trusting to dwindling fossil fuel reserves and possible fracking. We must act now and drive the necessary shift to a clean economy with integration between energy systems. There needs to be greater emphasis on renewables, energy storage and improved insulation and energy

Pete Williams

Americans are wedded to their petrol engines and while they have been endeavouring to become more self-sufficient through increased fracking they are now having to buy more unleaded from overseas which is reducing the availability of unleaded for the rest of the world. We have already seen the wholesale price of unleaded increase by 5p in just the last week and the ongoing crisis in the state of Texas could have a prolonged impact on demand and, in turn, the wholesale price – so we may see further price increases on UK

John Underhill

Both sides of the hydraulic fracturing debate assume that the geology is a 'slam dunk' and it will work if exploration drilling goes ahead… but the science shows that our country's geology is simply unsuitable for shale oil and gas production. The implication that because fracking works in the US, it must also work here is wrong. The only question that has been addressed to date is how large the shale resource is in the UK. The inherent complexity of the sedimentary basins has not been fully appreciated or articulated and, as a result, the opportunity has been

Fawad Razaqzada -

Above all, it is the ongoing fundamental issue of excessive supply that is continuing to weigh on oil prices. On this front, not a lot has changed despite the OPEC and Russia efforts recently. While these producers have tried to limit their oil output, U.S. shale oil continues to

Elisabeth Whitebread

Communities don't want the unnecessary industrialisation of our countryside for shale gas we don't need. More than three-quarters of people support renewables, so the government should listen to their own opinion polls, stay true to their manifesto promise and support offshore wind and solar instead of a new fossil fuel

Rose Dickinson - Friends of the Earth

This makes bad reading for the industry because they know they are desperately fighting an unwinnable battle for support. The extent to which this industry has failed to win over the public is undeniable. Opposition is increasing not only where fracking is proposed, but across the whole

Elisabeth Whitebread

Communities don't want the unnecessary industrialisation of our countryside for shale gas we don't need. And more than three quarters of people support renewables, so the government should listen to their own opinion polls, stay true to their manifesto promise, and support offshore wind and solar instead of a new fossil fuel industry. Concern about climate change is at its highest since 2012, and to meet our climate targets, we must leave fossil fuels in the ground. The fracking industry is pulling UK energy policy in entirely the wrong direction and the public is right to be

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The Democrats want to continue to use this as a PR stunt and are doing everything they can to keep this story alive and in the papers every single day. The president, the American people, they voted 'America First,' not Russia first – and that's the focus of our administration. If you want to talk about somebody who's been tough on Russia, look at President Trump. He wants more fracking, more coal, more energy, a stronger military, a stronger defense. Those things aren't good for Russia. The distinctions are very clear – and you want to create a narrative that doesn't

Harry Tchilinguirian - BNP Paribas

The simple truth is that OPEC and Russia have to contend with the fact that there is output growth elsewhere diluting their efforts at reducing supply. Nigeria, Libya and U.S. shale oil feature prominently as an offset to OPEC's

Francis Egan

We are very pleased to have taken delivery of the drilling rig to our shale gas exploration site. The drilling of the first horizontal exploration wells into UK shale rock will be an important milestone in unlocking a vital new source of natural gas for the country. With the decline of North Sea gas and our ever increasing reliance on gas imports, including shale gas imported from the US, developing an indigenous source of natural gas is critical for UK energy security, our economy, jobs and the environment. We are proud as a Lancashire company to be at the forefront of that

Polly Steiner - Friends of the Earth

Arfon Jones - Plaid

I was told last week there would be no further deployments after I made representations around capacity issues in North Wales and questioned how could we justify sending officers to Lancashire in those circumstances. Why should officers from North Wales be sent to police and facilitate an activity where the activity is more or less unlawful in their own country? The decision not to send any more officers from North Wales after this week may be down to a number of factors, my opposition only being one

Arfon Jones - Plaid

It "a danger in many respects but mainly because of potential pollution of water. I was a prominent member of Frack Free Wrexham and campaigned strongly and eventually successfully to prevent [fracking firm] IGas carrying out exploratory drilling at Borras [near Wrexham]. I was also prominent in lobbying the Welsh government to issue a moratorium over fracking in Wales, which they did, and will continue to lobby them to utilise new powers delegated to them over energy to ban fracking in line with other European

Francis Egan

I strongly condemn the increased illegal and aggressive behaviour of activists which has put all road users near our Preston New Road site at serious risk.

Naomi Hogan

The report makes clear that every part of the shale gas extraction process does come with risks, from the chemical transportation, to a grid of thousands of wells and pipelines, to faulty well integrity causing water contamination. The report documents a litany of concerns that have been put forward by Territory families, pastoralists and traditional owners about the impacts surrounding the fracking industry and polluting shale gasfields across the

Donald J. Trump

[W]hen I want a strong military, you know she wouldn't have spent the money on military. When I want tremendous energy, we're opening up coal, we're opening up natural gas, we're opening up fracking, all the things that he would hate, but nobody ever mentions

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

They come here because these are good jobs where people with a high school diploma can make $100,000 a year. The women I met said they feel safe, but they had unique stories. Some told me about finding out their boyfriends had families back home. (They thanked me that Facebook has made it harder for these men to live double lives.) Another woman told me she has never paid for a drink her whole

John Blaymires - IGAS Energy

The most important thing that you have [to do] to ensure that we do our jobs safely, environmentally responsibly, is we construct and design that well [in Nottinghamshire] to ensure the integrity. The fracking is incidental, almost, to the whole of the rest of this

Amin Nasser

If we look at the long-term situation of oil supplies, for example, the picture is becoming increasingly worrying. Financial investors are shying away from making much needed large investments in oil exploration, long-term development and the related infrastructure. Investments in smaller increments such as shale oil will just not cut

Francisco Blanch - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

I don't see a lot of downside below $40/$45 range. Maybe we get a little bit of a dip below but I just think the market is pretty oversupplied. Inventories are finally declining but the real issue is we need to have forward prices low enough to discourage shale. We need to see a slowdown in the fracking industry, and we just added 12 rigs which doesn't help at

Don Beyer

There's the larger environmental issue. In a world where we need to be moving away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible, and where our energy independence is high because of fracking, do we really need to be out there drilling offshore, especially in the wake of Deepwater Horizon?feedback

John Blaymires - IGAS Energy

That is not ultimately a sustainable way if the country decides that shale gas can provide benefits in terms of security of supply, jobs, growth etc, and be done safely and be done environmentally

Michael Stephenson

It's a little bit more terrestrial in origin, so it has more woody material rather than planktonic, marine material. That means probably it's a bit less capable of yielding a lot of gas. It [the gas] is there but what we've found through recent studies in the last two years is it's quite confined to layers within the

Miranda Cox

When your community and family is threatened, you are often left with little choice but to take direct action. As a councillor and member of this community, I have been left with no more alternatives. I feel our way of life locally is under attack by an industry that, backed by a distant central government, is seeking to turn Fylde and Lancashire into the largest gas field in Europe. I cannot stand by and allow this mass industrialisation to

Gina Dowding - Lancashire

It's abundantly clear that when it comes to fracking, local councils have been rendered weak and helpless. I feel I need to be here with the community to say that we won't roll over and accept this. We are putting our bodies on the line because our voices haven't been

Philippe Crouzet - Vallourec

We have kept contacts with people even if they were laid off. We are calling back those former employees and training new ones. There is a race to reduce costs. This has been extremely successful. This was not calculated by oil producing countries that thought that letting the price fall from $100 to $70 a barrel would kill the activity of shale oil and gas in North America. They were completely

Khalid al-Falih

In my opinion, market fundamentals are going in the right direction, but in light of the large surplus in stockpiles over the past years, the cut needs time to take effect, . Current expectations indicate the market will rebalance in the fourth quarter of this year, taking into account an increase in shale oil production. Markets determine prices but are themselves driven by unpredictable variables beyond the control of producing nations. Short-term volatility is mostly a reaction to short-term factors ... as well as the role of speculators in stock markets that increase market

Dallas Salazar - Atlas Capital Group

Gary Cohn

The price of natural gas because of the technological advances we've had in the United States, and all the fracking development in what we've done to create an abundance of natural gas, has made the price of coal less favorable today. That could change very

Anton Siluanov

On the one hand, this should keep prices at the levels they are at present, and on the other it gives a signal to those companies which are extracting shale oil, particularly in the USA, by increasing levels of drilling, by increasing the levels of extraction, and in the final reckoning by the growth of offers on the oil market. At the same it is necessary to be very attentive, it is necessary to be ready for the fact that the possible surplus offers of oil will put pressure to lower the

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

As a consequence of the extension of the cuts, we are likely to see a more supportive oil price and yet more U.S. shale oil rigs being added to the market over the coming nine months. In our view, this is likely to flip the global supply/demand balance for 2018 and 2019 into

Terry Lodge

This is a rather astonishing situation. Our governor is a rightwing Republican who is extremely pro-fracking and extremely

Sushant Gupta - Wood Mackenzie

The regulatory system is cooked. Its DNA does not allow communities to actually say no to things and protect their environment. Communities are then left arguing over the details of a permit granted to a corporation, but what a permit does is allow a certain amount of illegal activity to go on in the community. A permit is about negotiating the rate of destruction, not stopping

Majid Jafar

The key issue is actually what's happening in the U.S. The kickstart of the shale oil production there is faster than anybody thought…, you're seeing it in the rig count, you're seeing it in the cost of production, they can drill wells at a third of the cost and in a third of the time now. The key question not always in focus is China. What's really going on with their growth? Indian growth of oil demand is even faster than China's now. There needs to be a little more focus on the demand side as well to truly get a view of the overall

Theresa May knows she can rely on self-interested wealthy donors and campaigners who're allowed to break the spending rules without fear of prosecution. Greens don't work that way, and we're not in the pockets of the super-rich.

Despite the claims in the All Opinions Are Local blog post “Opposition to fracking in Maryland is anti-science” by Thomas Wheatley, most of the more than 900 peer-reviewed studies on hyrdaulic fracturing, known as fracking, confirm increased risks to our health and the environment from fracking.

Eugen Weinberg - Commerzbank

OPEC must at some point recognize and understand that they are no more the marginal producers and marginal production will be coming from shale oil so prices will come under massive pressure during this year once investors recognize oil supplies are not going to disappear. The world is awash with oil at the moment and there continues to be endless supply so therefore I don't see a real reason for prices to rise above $60 or $70…so I'm really seeing probably the risks of the prices falling below $50 for a considerable period of time and probably even touching the levels of $40 to $45 this

Dave Ernsberger - S&P Global

There is the shadow looming of new supply coming to market not just from Iran but also from the U.S. and what we're looking at heading into the second quarter is when will that oil come to market and will it begin to take the edge off prices a little bit. One cargo of shale oil is not like another and you don't really know what is going to happen when you put it through your refinery until it lands at your port and that's a little more uncertainty that even the oil refinery industry - which is used to uncertainty - is really willing to embrace right

Paul Wheelhouse

The debate on the future of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland has proven both complex and controversial. It is also an issue that has stimulated intense discussion, motivated by deeply held and sincere views on all sides. The Scottish Government has sought to present impartial, independent information on unconventional oil and gas in order to encourage informed dialogue and debate. This consultation does not set out or advocate a preferred Scottish Government position or policy. Instead, we want to create space for dialogue and allow different perspectives to come

The value of high-quality science has never been more important in helping to guide decisions around our nation's fragile water resources.

OPEC knows this dynamic. As such they have been quite clever by only pledging a cut lasting six months to begin with. This tightens up the front end of the market. OPEC would prefer though not to lift forward prices further out on the curve. They don't want to offer shale oil producers a free lunch with the possibility of a guaranteed, high profitability for new projects through a high forward

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

OPEC is putting U.S. shale oil to the test... (and) we will truly see what it can

Harold Hamm

We could take it from 10 [million barrels a day] to 20 [million]. The key here is not to get too much production coming back in – oversupply the market – or prices collapse and that's not a good deal for everybody. We have that potential in this country. That's what's available here. It needs to be done in a very systematic

Peter Thorne

We suggested that they provide a definition of 'systemic,' a definition of 'widespread' and then provide quantitative data to support the conclusion. That is all a way of asking them to put that kind of scientific rigor behind a statement as broad as

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

We are seeing shale oil at around $60 or so, for a big chunk of it to be profitable, and we may well see it come to the market and provide more oil to the

Rick Shearer

Our customers are talking about actually adding some crews even in Q4 and certainly adding crews into Q1 2017. We're very bullish, going forward, that our volumes and our pricing will continue to

Charles Foote - Credit Suisse Group

It's a good little pocket of positive activity, but I don't think you can extrapolate it

Patrick Pouyanne - Total

I know that the shale oil industry is very innovative and they have cut costs and adapt but we won't be able, if we continue this way, to fill the

Igor Sechin - Rosneft

The Americans want it most ($US50 per barrel) as the shale oil projects become profitable with such a price. And $US60 (per barrel) will result in more shale oil

Hillary Clinton

So by the time we get through all of my conditions, I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take

Helen Rimmer

Instead of shoving us down a dangerous path that inevitably leads to climate change, the government should invest in renewables and energy

Francis Egan

We are very pleased that we can now move ahead with our shale gas exploration plans which will start to create new economic growth opportunities and jobs for people in Lancashire and the UK. As a Lancashire business we are proud that the County will play such a vital role in securing vitally needed home sourced

Hillary Clinton

There will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take

Tetsu Emori

Even if there were no output deal at the informal talks, oil may not fall and could stay around $45 (a barrel) as shale oil production is not

Catherine Reheis-Boyd

Hydraulic fracturing and other well stimulation treatments in California have undergone rigorous analysis and review, culminating in the most stringent environmental standards

Brendan Cummings

This is a huge victory in the fight to protect our water and wildlife from fracking pollution and dangerous drilling. The Obama administration must get the message and end this reckless rush to auction off our public land to oil companies. As California struggles against drought and climate change, we've got to end fracking and leave this dirty oil in the

John Bradley

This ban ... will have nationwide impacts for Australia's energy

Malcolm Roberts

The decision today is short-term politics that will leave Victoria exposed to unnecessarily high energy

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We believe the announcement alleviates a significant uncertainty overhang for E&Ps leveraged to the DJ

Diana Best - Greenpeace

Despite the countless hours and the thousands of Coloradans who spoke in support of protecting the health and safety of Colorado communities, the movement faced an unprecedented flow of money from the oil and gas opposition that felt the need to spent $15 million to defeat us. We may be disappointed today, but tomorrow we get back to work empowering communities and keeping fossil fuels in the ground. This fight is far from

Karen Crummy

Colorado voters recognized that these extreme measures would destroy the state's economy and take away private property rights. The voters read the petitions and declined to

Karen Crummy

We are confident that Coloradans will see these measures for what they are: a backdoor fracking ban that would be economically devastating for our

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We continue to believe the worst-case scenario, the passage of Initiative 78, affecting up to 90 percent of the state's acreage, is a less likely event. However, we reiterate that the low-probability, potentially high-impact risk warrants concern. We believe this uncertainty overhang could affect E&Ps leveraged to the DJ Basin, especially in urban areas, continuing until Election Day should the initiatives officially make the

Lauren Petrie - Food & Water Watch

This is a good day for Colorado, and it's a good day for democracy. These initiatives will give communities political tools to fend off the oil and gas industry's effort to convert our neighborhoods to industrial sites. This is a significant moment in the national movement to stem the tide of fracking and natural

Lisa Trope - Food & Water Watch

We made it over the hurdle of having the signatures needed to turn into the Secretary of State and now it's in their hands to go through the validation

David Deckelbaum - KeyBanc Capital Markets

Given catastrophic implications for these companies, certain downside persists, though given limited likelihood that initiatives pass based on rational behavior, we would expect rally relief to

David Tameron - Wells Fargo Securities

There's obvious avenues that people would pursue and they would try to get an injunction or try to fight it on the grounds that it's

David Tameron - Wells Fargo Securities

The energy industry is very concerned. Essentially, it would grind drilling development to a halt in the

David Deckelbaum - KeyBanc Capital Markets

This is an issue where the bar for getting something on the ballot in Colorado is

John Christiansen - Anadarko Petroleum

This is bigger than any individual company, as these potential ballot measures would carry massive consequences for Colorado's economy, public education, public services and every

Benjamin Salisbury - FBR Capital Markets

We see the worst-case-scenario (Initiative 78 being approved and passed) as a very low probability but because of the rapid transformation of Colorado's electorate and unprecedented nature of November's election, we believe that the low-probability high-impact risk event warrants investor concern until it can be ruled

Bill Thomas - EOG Resources

The benefits of EOG's premium drilling strategy are beginning to show in our operating performance. We are committed to focusing capital on our premium assets which we are confident will increasingly lead to break-out performance as prices

Harold Hamm

Hillary Clinton would eliminate fossil fuel development in America, she would kill jobs, drive up gasoline prices and increase oil imports from our enemies. President Trump will release America's pent-up energy potential, get rid of foreign oil, trash punitive regulations, create millions of jobs, and develop our most strategic geopolitical weapon: crude

Sara Rasmussen

Residents of communities undergoing (fracking) and those nearby can be exposed to noise, light, vibration, heavy truck traffic, air pollution, social disruption and

Daisy Sands - Greenpeace

Theresa May should not be under the illusion that fracking is the answer to the UK's energy

Kassie Siegel

The Bureau of Land Management clearly has the authority not only to set this weak rule on fracking but to take the much stronger actions needed to truly protect our public

Ryan Sitton

This ruling sends a broad signal about who really does have the jurisdictional authority to regulate this

Lynn Helms

This ruling protects private and state-owned minerals from being subjected to unauthorized federal

Cynthia Lummis

This rule undermined the careful and efficient regulation of fracturing that states have put in place, like the rules written by

Gene McCowan

We would like to see more drilling. But we are caught in a bind because people are concerned about fracking and how that will affect the earth and

Kevin Cramer

The real opportunity for prosperity in this country has been to produce more because you have access to more markets. The last thing we need is more rules. One-third of refining capacity is owned by OPEC countries. How does this fit into his (Trump's) America first policy?feedback

Bernie Sanders

What we are trying to do in this campaign is to differentiate our positions from Secretary Clinton on the war in Iraq, on fracking, on how we raise money. That is what the American people want to hear. And by the way, one other point, Chuck: I would hope very much that as we go into New York State, Secretary Clinton's home state, that we will have a

Bjarne Schieldrop - SEB Bank

There is thus an increasing risk that the steep decline in U.S. shale oil rigs we have seen for weeks now may soon come to an end show an uptick rather than a further decline in a week or

Igor Sechin - Rosneft

Shale oil production has its limitations in scope and time ... U.S. shale oil production will reach its peak in

Thomas Porcher

What you should know is that the bigger the oil price decline the greater the rebound effect (ie the rise in prices). Because today with extremely low oil prices, investment in non-conventional oil, shale oil, is no longer

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

Due to the limited resource base (of US shale oil), it is going to plateau and decline. After 2020 there will be a major dominance of Middle East

Michael Hewson - CMC Markets

We're in a bit of a price war at the moment, we've got more supply then we've got demand, and I think this is in part a ploy by Saudi Arabia to I think squeeze the shale oil revolution and US producers more than anything else, but at some point I think we could well hit a floor and that floor is probably around the $80 a barrel

José Bové

I don't feel I've sold my soul to the devil. I'm here where decisions are taken, I'm here to take part. I'm not turning my back on battles in the field, which are also important for me. At the moment, for example, I'm fighting multinational shale oil prospectors. It's crazy to let them do that. For me it's essential to go into battle locally, but also to mobilise at a European level and

Zbigniew Krezel

People say different things: 'The water will turn yellow'… 'The hens will lay no more eggs'… but I don't know if this is true or

Czeslawa Kulbaka

There will be irreversible changes underground because this technique will create fractures. The concrete surrounding the pipes won't last forever so the local water supply will be

Jean-Francois Lalfert

There are already cases of cancer, there are already cases of poisoning. It's been seen in the United States, it's been seen in Canada, in Germany, in Poland, it's been seen wherever shale gas has been extracted from the bedrock. Hydrocarbons which are extracted from the bedrock. All around there is damage to health. It's not worth digging these wells if you're going to make people

Magdalena Piatkowska

Our well is designed in a way which protects underground water against any possible pollution from drilling fluid or in the future against gas which could migrate to the surface. Each casing set is cemented to the surface and I can promise that there is no possibility that gas or drilling fluid reach a point where there is a contact with underground

Karol Kaszczuk

They say that no chemicals will be used. Yet we know that the shale gas is extracted by injecting chemicals and can be dangerous for the
