Dr. Fine spoke in Raleigh, NC in a lecture sponsored by the John Locke Foundation and the Jesse Helms Center entitled “Shale Gas Wars: From Pennsylvania to North Carolina”
“While North Carolina struggles with an ongoing abysmal employment situation, fracking is providing a welcome boon for North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, among others. Being a latecomer in the game could have its own benefits, however; as Daniel Fine of the New Mexico Center for Energy Policy has explained, North Carolina is well positioned to survey and adopt the best practices, the best technology, and the best legal landscape. And the Deep River Basin in Lee and Chatham counties offers an especially promising area for development.”
