Canonsburg, Pa. – Today, after several months of hearings and public input, a U.S. Department of Energy panel released a set of “consensus-based” recommendations regarding the shale gas development process. Kathryn Klaber, president and executive director of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, issued the following statement:

“Taken together, these fact-based recommendations represent yet another key step toward ensuring that common sense policies must be in place to ensure that American natural gas development continues to be balanced with the proper environmental safeguards.
