Poland regulates shale gas exploration & extraction
June 11, 2014
Poland's lower house of parliament Sejm passed the hydrocarbons bill facilitating exploration and extraction of unconventional resources by introducing a single E&E permit.
A single permit for exploration and extraction will replace three separate permits required presently, the government's press office said when the bill was approved by the cabinet in March 2014.
As a rule, permits will be granted for the period of 10-30 years. Other solutions include facilitating the procedure of granting environmental permits and limiting documentation requirements.
