Fracking is about to start in Slovenia

In the north east part of Slovenia, next to Hungarian border shell gas was found bellow ground. The area used to be known as the biggest Yugoslavian oil field. Nowadays oil is long gone and area is mainly farmland with beautiful nature. But this is about to change. In 2011 large deposits of gas were found deep underground. British company Ascent resources is about to start drilling. They have all the required permits to extract the gas using fracking.

In the video that is mostly in slovenian language you can see drilling holes in the middle of the fields. Population that lives near is not aware of the danger.
