When/ will SWN return to New Brunswick?

CBC reports, “SWN Resources Canada has completed its controversial shale gas exploration in New Brunswick. The company issued a brief statement late Friday afternoon. …There is no information on when — or if — the company will be back to do any future work.”

APTN adds, “Elsipogtog War Chief John Levi said Friday that the RCMP informed him that SWN Resources Canada is ending its exploration work, but will return in 2015.”

And they note that, “Levi said word that SWN is leaving is no cause for celebration just yet. ‘We went through a lot’, he said. ‘We need some time for this to sink in and think about everything, think about what we went through…People did a lot of sacrificing.'”

More to come.
