NB shale gas action plan update

As stated on this publication yesterday, the province's action plan on shale gas regulations, intended by government to be completed no later than March 2012, has yet to be released. With two working days left in the month, nothing has appeared on the Natural Resources website, the Department of Environment website, nor that of the Premier's where many announcements for all departments are often made.

Natural Resources Minister Bruce Northrup gave an update yesterday in the video above, and Natural Gas Group spokesperson, Marc Belliveau, also responded via e-mail, saying the reason for the delay was due to the process taking longer than expected.
