MONTREAL, Jan. 30, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Oil and Gas
Association (QOGA) today welcomed the publication of operating
practices for hydraulic fracturing by the Canadian Association of
Petroleum Producers (CAPP).
"QOGA salutes CAPP for establishing these best practices for industry.
These commitments demonstrate the seriousness and rigor with which
industry takes the development of our natural gas potential. Industry
is constantly striving to meet the population's expectations with
regard to this important energy source," said Stéphane Gosselin,
Director General of QOGA.
QOGA will use CAPP's principles as an important reference in
establishing its own rules to ensure a safe and responsible development
of Quebec's natural gas potential.
"Quebecers must be reassured that we are listening to their concerns. We
want to maintain a mutual dialogue between citizens and industry. This
dialogue must be open and transparent. Today's announcement on
fracturing fluid disclosure is an example of this," said Mr. Gosselin.
Members of QOGA value and encourage initiatives of openness and
transparency in developing the natural gas industry. QOGA salutes the
work of its Canadian counterpart.
