POTENTIAL RISKS shale gas: MIKROWSTRZĄSY Quoting Commonwealth country and the main geologist can be assumed that "Earthquakes because shale in Poland will not be" The research done on request by the Minister of the Environment Institute of Geophysics indicates that the ongoing exploration of shale gas in Pomerania not have no effect on seismic phenomena. - So they do not cause the earthquake hazard - explains the "Government" chief geologist Henryk Jacek Jezierski country. 

Ministry of the Environment commissioned a study on the so-called concessions Łebień. fracturing treatment consisting of crushed rock to release the gas, allowing you to assess the size of the resource. But it turned out that mikrowstrząsy that arise in this process, they are harmless - they can only register them specialized, highly sensitive measuring devices, and they are harmless. 

As explained by Professor Alexander Guterch of the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland is one of the areas asejsmicznych, inactive when it comes to movements of the earth, and the dangers in downhole vibration is minimal.
