Cuadrilla has got the go-ahead to pipe rain water falling on its fracking site near Blackpool into a local brook.
The decision has been delayed in the public inquiry into IGas plans to test the flow of its well at Ellesmere Port, the Planning Inspectorate has confirmed.
The inquiry into Ineos drilling plans goes into its second week this morning with evidence expected on noise and a proposed acoustic barrier.
The maximum strength of tremors induced by new fracking at Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site has been estimated at 3.1ML, the company said in a document published today.
An investor in the West Newton wellsite in East Yorkshire has said it could be the UK’s largest onshore gasfield and the largest onshore hydrocarbon discovery since 1973.
