Resource titleUnconventional Oil and Gas: Compatibility with Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions Targets
Author/sourceCommittee on Climate Change
Date publishedAugust 2016
Summary text/ abstractThe Committee on Climate Change has been asked by the Scottish Government to examine the impacts of extraction of Scottish unconventional oil and gas (UOG), comprising shale gas, shale oil and coalbed methane, on greenhouse gas emissions and climate targets. It is outside the scope of the study to investigate other issues that have been raised in relation to UOG development, such as local noise, traffic, water and wider environmental impacts; some of these are covered by parallel studies commissioned by the Scottish Government. The Committee's advice relates solely to greenhouse gas emissions and the impact on Scottish emissions targets. The implications for greenhouse gas emissions of UOG exploitation are subject to considerable uncertainties, both regarding the size of any future industry and the emissions footprint of production. This uncertainty alone calls for close monitoring of developments. The Committee will continue to monitor developments and provide further advice should this be necessary.
