June 19, 2017
Contact: Gretchen Fox, 512-694-4326

The following can be attributed to  Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association.  Mr. Staples is available for interviews to discuss today’s release the TAMEST Shale Task Force report, Environmental and Community Impacts of Shale Development in Texas.

“The report released today by The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) reaffirms that Texas’ science-based policies are protecting our environment while allowing oil and natural gas development to make our communities, state and nation more secure. Specifically, like many studies before, TAMEST’s report concludes that fracking is not contaminating water or causing earthquakes.  The task force should be commended for including diverse perspectives in this effort to better understand existing research and new opportunities for study.”
