Original documents at: http://www.facebook.com/shalegas This video explains the geological and technical aspects of the proposed exploitation of the Utica shale gas in the densely populated area between Montreal and Quebec. The technical documents discusses the very serious technical limitations and flaws of the fracking method. It shows why only a mere 20% of the gas can be extracted by this technique, and the serious consequences that this will imply, with the remaining 80% of methane that will slowly but continuously for years and centuries, flow from the fractured shale. My 2nd video "Shale Gas 102 - The Experiment" is available now. by Marc Durand, honorary professor of engineering geology, Earth Sc Dept. Univ. of Quebec, - English narration: Ingrid Style/ G.
