Perhaps no topic in energy and environmental law has been more hotly contested than the extraction of shale oil and gas from rock formations through hydraulic fracturing or "fracking." It is the subject of vigorous debates - many of them controversial - over its purported economic benefits and environmental impacts. With that backdrop, this pamphlet provides an overview of major fracking topics from a legal and regulatory perspective, including:
•a history of the fracking process
•environmental issues and concerns
•an overview of federal-, state-, and municipal-level legislation and regulations related to fracking
•a survey of current litigation
•questions for oil companies and landowners to consider before agreeing to undertake or be a party to fracking activities
