"The wealth of opportunity presented by high-volume hydraulic fracturing (better known as hydrofracking) to tap into U.S. natural gas resources also presents businesses, municipalities, utilities, and others with a host of new and complex legal and regulatory challenges. That is why Goldberg Segalla LLP created Shale Watch—to sort through the hype and provide a forum for discussing the practical implications of current legal developments pertaining to hydraulic fracturing within all jurisdictions encompassing the Marcellus Shale formation. Topics of interest include proposed and new federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and ordinances, as well as other commercial or litigation issues."
