Meet the FRACKers

 European Shale Gas and Oil Summit (ESGOS) 2013

jonathan reports from the European Shale Gas and Oil Summit (ESGOS) 2013;

The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining,

1 Carlton House Terrace, London.

When one thinks back to the Blair Government, and especially the build-up to the Iraq war, one is immediately reminded of the ‘sofa politics’ (government/cabinet), the ‘spin doctors’, the ‘sexing up’ of reports and conferences, the PR consultants and the media ‘communications’ officers that surrounded it. We were made more cynical of ‘information’ and ‘communications’ and could see it for what it really was… PROPAGANDA.

When one reads the following ‘information’ about ESGOS 2013, one must view it with that same cynical eye and read between the heavily laden, psycho/neuro-linguistically programming lines contained within it.

To quote a few examples:

Sustainable’: When we think of the word ‘sustainable’, it conjures up images of ecologically friendly actions, processes and forms of energy. How many times, though, is this word used in the following report to mean ‘keep going, maintain continuously’? For example, what does it really mean when it says “to direct the industry towards a successful and sustainable future across Europe”?

Risk‘: The word ‘risk’, in most people’s minds, is a comparison of the probabilities of something happening or not happening. ‘Risk’, as used in the energy industry, means something completely different and leads to something called ‘risk management’. The ‘risk’ of negative impacts on the environment is a certainty, not a product of the laws of probability. The amount of damage done is a matter of probability that can, to some extent, be ‘managed’.

Beware of other, seemingly innocuous, words and phrases which, when you undress the sexy camouflage, reveal something slightly more sinister…

networking” = ‘unfair access to people with secret (‘not yet in the public domain’) knowledge’

opportunities” = ‘plans’

key stakeholders” = ‘the people with secret (‘not yet in the public domain’) knowledge’

“platform for the industry to discuss and debate” = ‘sales pitch’ (And it was a sales pitch; I spoke to people coming out of the summit who were virtually salivating at the mouth, licking their lips and whose eyes were bulging in their sockets after hearing the amounts of money they were being told they could make. One, fairly young, guy came out and asked me, ‘Really, if you were told you could make millions of pounds, you’d take it, wouldn’t you?’ And others came out as if they’d had a religious experience, with that euphoria I’ve seen at religious meetings, believing all the claims about the FRACKing industry’s ability to make it safe.)

“maximizing potential” = ‘total exploitation and monopolisation’

“gathering momentum sustainably” = ‘total exploitation and monopolisation, without anyone suspecting it as such; or ‘tiptoe’ monopolisation’

“access critical information” = ‘insider dealing’

“popular sponsorship opportunities” = ‘control of the media’ (one ‘magazine’ mentioned in the following article has only just launched (August 2013, if you believe their website; September 2013, if you believe this article) and is already ‘profitable’ and popular enough to act as ‘media partner’ for ESGOS in October 2013… really?!!)

“gain key contacts whilst obtaining industry information to develop your business” = (speaks for itself, does it not?)

One classic example of the type of psychological linguistics used in order to create a ‘we-care-about-the-environment’ image, is the following quote, from the Environmental Industries Commission (sounds like a ‘nice’ organisation?). Note the number of words in this sentence that carry with them a ‘positive’ inference (especially in the same sentence as the word ‘environmental’): ‘promote’, ‘health’, ‘quality’, ‘benefits’, ‘protection’, ‘campaigning’, ‘winning’, ‘support’ and ‘favourable’:

“EIC’s objective is to promote the economic, health and quality benefits of environmental protection and the industry that services it by campaigning and winning support for a favourable legislative, regulatory, and fiscal framework to overcome an acute market failure which does not factor the cost of polluting externalities into doing business.”

The last part of this quote gives the game away… the environment, our world, is demoted to the status of an ‘externality’. Shall I attempt to translate this passage for you, as politely as I can?

‘EIC’s objective is to ‘lobby’ government to make laws that compel us [the Commission’s registered companies] to clean up the pollution that industry causes [and refuses to do anything about] and get the tax-payer to pay for it’; and, incidentally, create and ‘sustain’ (see, I can use that word too!) “an industry worth £122 billion to the domestic economy, and employing one million people.” There is also a glaring admission in this stated objective: industrial companies do not include the costs of environmental protection into their business plans, models or financial forecasts. At least EIC got one thing right… the lack of accountability for environmental damage is “an acute market failure.”

I could say lots more about the hypocrisy, corruption and overt relationship between Big Business, Banks and Public Servants (politicians); but I’ll leave it you to make your own judgment by reading about Who was there, Why they were there and What they were talking about… (Romania! be afraid; you’re next.)

What was ESGOS 2013?

The European Shale Gas and Oil Summit 2013 is a two-day conference and networking event covering the latest developments, strategies and opportunities within shale gas exploration across Europe at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in Mayfair.

What are the aims of ESGOS?

The purpose of the European Shale Gas and Oil Summits is to bring all the key stakeholders together and to direct the industry towards a successful and sustainable future across Europe. Developing the shale gas industry requires a platform for the industry to discuss and debate key topics to ensure we are maximizing potential for everyone and gathering momentum sustainably.

Why do people attend the summit?

Thought Leadership: access critical information for your company to develop activity or initiate operations within the exploration of unconventional resources.

Networking: access to key political leaders, operators, contractors, consultants, investors and energy experts.

Marketing: promote your companies’ services through our popular sponsorship opportunities

Business Development: gain key contacts whilst obtaining industry information to develop your business.

Who attended the 2013 summit?

Political leaders and governmental representatives will be attending from national and European level.

Shale gas operators and investors currently active or looking to initiate operations will be present during the summit alongside shale gas contractors and service companies. The mix will also include environmental consultants, representatives from local councils and professional institutions.

What is ESGOS about?

  • Policy, Legislation and Framework
  • Drilling and Hydraulic fracturing
  • Overcoming Environmental Concerns
  • Commercializing Shale Gas
  • Health and Safety Regulations
  • Best Practice from USA
