A hard-hitting documentary exploring the devastation & contamination caused by hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in Queensland, Australia
… and now threatening the UK!
This one hour documentary exposes the impact of more than seven thousand unconventional gas wells, which have been drilled and fracked over the past seven years, through the testimonies of farmers who have had their soil, air, rivers and livestock poisoned by an industry that puts ‘Profit above ALL else’!
The full title of the film ‘Voices from the Gasfields – it started with just one well’ points to the relevance of the film to the UK, where only ONE well has been drilled and fracked to date (Preese Hall fracked by Cuadrilla in early 2011).
The film’s produceer Ian R Crane says, “My aim is to let the victims of the Unconventional Gas Industry speak to the world. Those who have had their livelihoods destroyed are now dedicated to giving a direct warning to farmers and residents of rural areas like the East Riding, North Yorkshire and the Fylde in Lancashire. The UK coalition Government is desperate to prove that shale gas and coal bed methane can save the British economy regardless of the direct threat to water supplies and the environment.”
Ian R Crane is a former oilfield services industry executive who has devoted the last two and a half years to raising awareness of the irrefutable devastation & contamination caused by the unconventional gas industry.
“The oil and gas industry refers to ‘Sacrifice Zones’, it is imperative for the well-being of this small island and all its inhabitants, that we learn from the experience of those who have the misfortune to live in areas of the world which have already fallen victim to the unconventional gas industry.”
