One of the UK’s leading seismologists says more shale gas wells must be fracked to assess the risk from tremors.
Small earth tremors have continued to be recorded around the Surrey village of Newdigate during the summer.
UK shale gas reserves may be “markedly lower than previously thought”, according to research published today.
“New methane study backs climate case against fracking” – campaigners; “erroneous conclusions” – industry
Opponents of onshore shale gas in the UK have said new research on global methane emissions supports their call for a ban on fracking on climate change grounds.
“UK fracking debate likely to stay deadlocked as neither side makes a compelling case” – new research
Campaigners for and against fracking are failing to deliver a decisive blow to their opponents, according to a new study.
Calls by the shale gas industry to relax the rules on earth tremors induced by fracking are not widely supported by the public, according to a new poll.
Support for fracking has recovered from a record low in the spring, according to results from the latest government attitudes survey. Opposition has fallen from a previous record high.
