There are significant reserves of unconventional gas and oil present throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK. On 28 January 2015 the Scottish Government Energy Minister Fergus Ewing announced that there is to be a moratorium on granting consents for unconventional oil and gas developments in Scotland whilst further research and a public consultation is carried out. That decision came days after the UK Government voted against a moratorium. The UK Government has now agreed not to award any more fracking licences in Scotland. New powers over the industry are due to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament.
