Oct. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Britain has “great potential” to develop shale gas fields once the government gets the right regulations in place for the industry, the nation’s energy minister said.

John Hayes, who was named to his post last month, said, “Once we’ve got the safety and security right, the regulations right, shale gas has great potential for Britain.” He spoke in an interview with Bloomberg Television in London today.

“This is innovative. We have to do this in a way that’s cautious and careful,” he said.
