Junex's pilot project for shale gas exploration
Four years after shale gas exploration in the St. Lawrence River valley came to a screeching halt, there are definite signs of renewed interest. The government's environmental review board, the BAPE, has just completed public hearings and will file recommendations by the end of the year.
Quebec exploration company Junex presented its ideas last week. President Peter Dorrins explains their pilot project meant to demonstrate that drilling for shale gas can be done properly.
