Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

The future of US fracking and finding who gets the final say

July 18, 2016 (12:37 mins)



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

Fracking helped unleash a flood of new US oil and gas production, but regulating it is no simple task. The Obama administration has not embraced the environmental movement to keep all fossil fuels in the ground and the topic has become a wedge issue in this year's presidential race. Given that a Wyoming federal judge recently overturned a major fracking rule, where does the future path of oversight of the oil and gas industry lead? Platts senior editor Brian Scheid interviews Michael Freeman, a staff attorney with Earthjustice, and Kathleen Sgamma, a vice president with the Western Energy Alliance, to try and find out.
