Dods Information

Tailored political intelligence

Hydraulic fracturing briefing


Shale gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing sits alongside renewable energy development and new nuclear as dominant themes of the current Government’s energy policy. It is though one of the most controversial aspects and exploratory drilling has thus far generated extensive media coverage and local protests.

This briefing utilises Dods Polling data to assess the extent of support for the industry, the party political positions taken, and also looks at the Government’s final attempt before the election to boost the industry: using the Infrastructure Bill to amend the law on trespass rights.
