Worst Case Scenario

This documentary looks at the risks of a proposed sour gas well near Clearwater River, in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Farmers and landowners all share concerns. Residents opposed to the well fear a deadly hydrogen sulphide leak. Shell Canada says it must drill to meet energy needs. When mediation talks break down, both sides anxiously await a ruling from Alberta's Energy and Utilities Board.

    “A fascinating documentary. All credit to the population who opposed the well and their dignified manner in doing so. I would dearly love to know if Shell re-applied and if so what measures the residents were able to take for their safety and way of life. It was heart warming to see this victory for the people who stated their case so passionately - an example of 'Community' in the real sense of the word. ” — merlinsdreams, 28 Aug 2014
