Cuadrilla has confirmed that it has finished the flow test on its second horizontal shale gas well at Preston New Road, near Blackpool.
Cuadrilla has said it will make small goodwill payments to people living near its Lancashire shale gas site who said their homes were damaged by the UK’s largest fracking-induced tremor in August.
Cuadrilla has confirmed no more fracking will take place at its shale gas site in Lancashire before a planning deadline at the end of November.
Shale gas regulators have cleared the way for the second phase of fracking at Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site, near Blackpool, the company said today.
Jeremy Corbyn met campaigners outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool this afternoon and repeated his call on the government to ban fracking.
