Stuart Haszeldine, Professor of Geology at the University of Edinburgh, reviews new research on fracking-induced earthquakes, released yesterday by the Oil & Gas Authority. The studies analysed hydraulic fracturing at Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road shale gas site near Blackpool and concluded that induced seismicity was difficult to predict […]
The government is standing by its moratorium on fracking in England after new research concluded that induced earthquakes were hard to predict and manage.
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla Resources, has described itself as “largely non-operational” following the moratorium on fracking in England.
More than a third of damage reports following the UK’s strongest fracking-induced earthquake in Lancashire last year were from one town, according to data released this week.
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla Resources, is looking at conventional oil and gas opportunities in the UK after predicting no fracking this year.
The assessment of earthquake risk from fracking at a proposed shale gas site in Lancashire is superficial, outdated and not justified, experts have concluded.
IGas should not be allowed to dispose of radioactive wastewater in a well at its Singleton oil site in the South Downs, campaigners have argued.
Most of the strongest earth tremors caused by Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool were after the company’s last frack, according to data from the British Geological Survey (BGS).
Cuadrilla confirmed this morning it had resumed fracking after a tiny tremor was recorded near its Preston New Road fracking site.
A report on the swarm of earthquakes in Surrey earlier this year finds no evidence they were triggered by oil and gas operations. But an academic who contributed to the official investigation into the cause of the quakes disagrees with the conclusion and critics of onshore drilling have […]
