Shoal Point Energy : wants to try drilling without hydraulic fracturing, or fracking

Let’s drill without fracking : Shoal Point Energy is not giving up

Mark Jarvis, CEO of Shoal Point Energy, says the company wants to try drilling without using the fracking technique.

Mark Jarvis, CEO of Shoal Point Energy, says the company wants to try drilling without using the fracking technique.

Shore Point Energy is not surrendering right now on recovering what it assessments to be a large portion of a billion barrels of oil from the west shoreline of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The organization now needs to have a go at boring without the questionable strategy for water driven cracking, or fracking.

“Shore Guide Enery might want toward endeavor to penetrate a well and test it to check whether we can create oil without using pressurized water cracking the well. We have motivation to trust we can,” said Check Jarvis, CEO of Reef Point Vitality.

The organization will present an arrangement in May to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Seaward Oil Board (C-NLOPB) and the Division of Characteristic Assets to back its most up to date discoveries.

An autonomous board designated by the commonplace government in 2014 to survey the effect of water driven breaking in western Newfoundland discharged a last report in May 2016 that recommended putting a delay on the boring procedure for the present.

From that point forward, Reef Direct Vitality chosen toward investigate information from penetrate stem tests which uncovered a characteristic breaking of the earth.

“All the structural development resembles it’s created a broad cracking in the stone,” Jarvis said.

Staff backpedaled over the information, he stated, and trust they can penetrate without water powered cracking. Jarvis said he didn’t know about the condition of the shale when he initially purposed water driven breaking as an alternative.




While Reef Direct Vitality is resolved toward deliver oil in a zone where it has effectively spent near $50 million, individuals who live there are not entirely certain.

Raymond Cusson from Glenburnie-Birchy Head-Shore Rivulet in Gros Morne National Stop restricted pressure driven breaking from the earliest starting point.

He wouldn’t like to perceive any penetrating on the region’s west drift.

“No boring is protected and no penetrating is managed without ecological cost,” he said.

Cusson trusts any spill while penetrating would destroy the fishery in the region, and contrarily affect the economy encompassing the tourism business.

He wants to screen Shore Point Vitality’s best course of action and expectations the Newfoundland and Labrador government educates the general population of any progressions to penetrating on the west drift.

“We are the group. We are the ones that live here,” he said.
