Frackman. More fiction than fact.
February 25th, 2015
The Energy Resource Information Centre has fact checked claims made in the film.
Frackman The Movie is presented as: ‘a film about a bunch of ordinary people caught up in a multinational gold rush to secure and exploit coal seam gas’.
But it’s worth taking a look at the motivation, funding and drivers behind the film as well as being aware of the facts.
There’s a lot of accusations made in the film, and a lot of claims made about the natural gas industry.
Check back regularly, because we’ll be updating this section as more claims are made about the industry.
UPDATE: Our Frackman fact check focus on some of the key claims made in the film.
