INEOS renews offer to drill shale gas test well in the UK

That won’t be easy. Starting something as complex as shale is hard anywhere but the real challenges are not going to be in the drilling. That will be figured out. The true challenge will be getting most of the local population behind fracking. And that will only work if they get something in return. Outside the US, real estate holders don’t own what’s under the surface. This alone is a massive incentive for them. Here in Europe, we might want to think about making property owners somehow profit from the shale under their feet. Something will have to be done to garner local support.
