Between March and July 2014 the expert panel on hydraulic fracturing released 10 discussion papers. These papers were posted on the website, emailed to stakeholders and discussed widely among media sources. After each paper was released there was a 2 to 3 week period for feedback and commentary. Taking all feedback into consideration each paper will in due course become a chapter of the final report. The original discussion papers and the feedback on those papers is posted below.
