The Environment and the Oil and Gas Industry - Dennis M. Toft

August 27, 2014

Oil & Gas Monitor

Dennis M. Toft authored the article "The Environment and the Oil and Gas Industry," which was published in Oil & Gas Monitor on August 27, 2014. The article mentions the increased demand for new natural gas and oil pipelines throughout the country as more oil and gas deposits are located and are able to be extracted. Dennis addresses that “pipeline projects create concerns on several levels – from the impact of the construction, to the safety of the operation to questions about whether pipeline availability will only generate a need for further fracking.” Opponents of pipelines often delay or derail projects before they get started. “Pipeline projects proponents whether oil or natural gas, need to understand and address these issues and the regulatory arena in which they will be raised in order to have the best chance of succeeding.”
