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 […]
A six-day methane gas release at Cuadrilla’s fracking site near Blackpool had the same carbon footprint as 142 flights from London to New York, new research has concluded.
