Cuadrilla has announced it expects to begin fracking near Blackpool in the next week.
People will be able to view seismic monitoring data from around Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road fracking site, the company said today.
The shale gas company Cuadrilla, announced this morning it had received permission to frack its second horizontal well in Lancashire.
The government has granted final consent for fracking at the UK’s first horizontal shale gas well at Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site in Lancashire.
Cuadrilla said this morning it had finished drilling the UK’s second horizontal shale gas well and would soon prepare for hydraulic fracturing at the site in Lancashire. The announcement coincided with news that a hose pipe ban for residents in the county would begin on 5 August.
The Green Party Co-leader, Jonathan Bartley, said today he would be raising community concerns with Cuadrilla about what would happen in an emergency at the company’s fracking site.
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, has recorded an annual profit for the first time following a multi-million dollar payment from partner, Centrica.
