Romania: Anti-fracking protesters target Chevron gas operation
Home / Portfolio / Ruptly / Romania: Anti-fracking protesters target Chevron gas operation
I produced a short video on the anti-fracking protests held in Bucharest in June 2013 targeting Chevron's shale gas operation in Romania.
Romanian environmental campaigners gathered in the streets of Bucharest to oppose plans by US energy giant Chevron to begin extracting shale gas with the controversial natural gas drilling technique of hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking'. Protesters claim that the Romanian government's plans to allow fracking in the Dobruja region, near the Bulgarian border, will run an unacceptable risk of polluting the countryside and local groundwater.
