A veteran US shale geologist now working with INEOS has raised doubts about fracking in a key area of the UK.
Cuadrilla’s plans mean wellpads 3km apart and practically every metre of the Fylde fracked, say campaigners
Opponents of fracking in Lancashire have published a map, which they say shows what the area would look like if Cuadrilla built its planned number of shale gas wellpads.
The biggest constraint on a UK shale gas industry could be finding land suitable for drilling sites, the Shale UK conference heard this afternoon. Complex geology would also limit how, and where, companies can drill.
