The Opportunity and Impacts of Natural Gas from Shale in Southwest Pennsylvania

In adopting the final report, Roundtable members endorse that it was built on constructive dialogue, was informed by sound research and information, and that the included recommendations merit consideration by policymakers at all levels as they seek to effectively and safely manage unconventional oil and gas development.
While the Roundtable has achieved general agreement on the report’s value in informing decision makers, individual Roundtable members may not agree on the details of every recommendation. The final report reflects the careful deliberations and findings of the Shale Gas Roundtable; it does not necessarily reflect the views of the members’ affiliated organizations or of the Institute of Politics.
“Our central question was this: As a region, how can we most effectively and responsibly safeguard our communities and environment, grow our economy, and manage unconventional oil and gas development? Our members recognized the value judgments and trade-offs inherent in attempting to answer this question and the balancing act that would be necessary to make progress.”
