The European Parliament legislation that subjects companies planning to use hydraulic fracturing to in-depth environmental audits. In France and Bulgaria, the method is banned.

France and Poland have the greatest potential for recoverable shale gas in Europe, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Oct 4, 2013 Reuters - The public prosecutor in the Spanish city of Castellon has opened an investigation into potential criminal liabilities after hundreds of unusual small earthquakes, possibly linked to a natural gas storage project, have shaken the Valencia coast.

France’s Fracking Ban ‘Absolute’ After Court Upholds Law
11 October 2013 - France’s constitutional court upheld a ban on hydraulic fracturing, ruling that the law against the energy-exploration technique known as fracking is a valid means of protecting the environment.

The ban can no longer be attacked in court and will benefit the fight against carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels

The 2011 law “conforms to the constitution” and is not “disproportionate,” the court in Paris said in a decision posted on its website today.

“It’s a judicial victory but also an environmental and political victory,” French Environment Minister Philippe Martin said today after the ruling. “With this decision the ban on hydraulic fracturing is absolute.”
