Abstract:
The state just released a draft report on fracking that outlines the many dangers of fracking, but concludes that it can be completed safely if properly regulated. Governor Beverly Perdue and the Department of Energy and Natural Resources recently opposed fracking, but have suddenly reversed their views over the past few weeks. All indications are that the state does not have the regulations, the enforcement, or the infrastructure in place for fracking and to prevent environmental disasters caused by fracking, but will look to go ahead with the practice anyway.

Abstract:
Offshore drilling may come to North Carolina in the future. The potential prospects for drilling for gas and oil off the coast of North Carolina are currently being explored. The Point off the shore of Hatteras Island is an area of particular interest to drilling companies, but the area is an environmentally sensitive area. Even if North Carolina does not allow drilling or allows drilling in areas other than The Point, all of the state’s coast, environment, and economy are at risk if other states drill for oil or gas and a spill occurs. An in-depth look at the impact offshore drilling could have on the state is detailed.
