France - Mining Law reforms sidestep question of fracking.

The recent report dealing with reforms to the loi minier or French Mining Code have sidestepped the issue of hydraulic fracking/fracturing dealing only with 'permitted activities'. Under the current legislation ( loi Jacob of July 2011 ) fracking is not allowed in France.

Read a report here ( in French but an easy matter to copy and paste the material into Google Translator ):

So, the mess that pertained at the time when the Sarkozy government secretly allowed permits for areas like Cahors in 2010 remains.
