Complex geology in one of the UK’s leading shale gas regions places a major constraint on exploration and production, scientists have concluded.
Emissions of methane from fossil fuels have been underestimated by up to 40%, according to a new study.
DrillOrDrop has compiled reaction to the government’s statement on a immediate moratorium on fracking. We have comments from community groups, campaigners, academics, politicians and the shale gas industry. Full report on the government statement
Emissions from flares – including climate-damaging methane – could be underestimated, according to new research published today.
The concentration of climate-changing methane peaked when Third Energy carried out maintenance on a North Yorkshire gas site, researchers have found.
An expert in hydraulic fracturing warned Cuadrilla and UK regulators in the days before fracking began near Blackpool that the operation would probably cause earth tremors.
“New methane study backs climate case against fracking” – campaigners; “erroneous conclusions” – industry
Opponents of onshore shale gas in the UK have said new research on global methane emissions supports their call for a ban on fracking on climate change grounds.
