Poland's New Environment Minister Calls Shale Gas His Priority


WARSAW, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Poland's new environment minister Maciej Grabowski said on Wednesday that shale gas will be his priority.

"Accelerating shale gas exploitation will be a priority to me. There is a chance for us to be a leading country in this respect in the coming months," Grabowski told a news conference, at which Poland's prime minister announced a bigger government reshuffle.

Grabowski will replace Marcin Korolec, who will continue to represent Poland in ongoing U.N.climate talks.
