SAN ANTONIO, Texas (ICIS)--Government regulation is the biggest risk to the US shale boom, industry experts said on Tuesday.
“The biggest risk is government,” said Brian Habacivch, of energy consultancy FellonMcCord.
“Government risk is the biggest it has been in a long time,” Habacivch said during a panel discussion at the International Petrochemical Conference (IPC).
“That’s a risk that could have a measurable impact on production and the outlook for shale,” he added.
The panel discussion, entitled Future Uses of the American Shale Prosperity, was moderated by ICIS Insight editor Nigel Davis.
Hosted by the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), the IPC continues through Tuesday.
