A Conservative group has defied party policy by proposing a ban on fracking.
Will Cuadrilla resume fracking this month at Preston New Road in Lancashire? Will drilling begin at Horse Hill in Surrey? Will IGas announce plans for Springs Road in Nottinghamshire?
IGas said results from its Springs Road exploration well in Nottinghamshire were “highly encouraging” and a “step forward for shale gas development in the east midlands”.
Friends of the Earth has launched legal proceedings to try to force Cuadrilla to “substantially reduce” the scale of its injunction against anti-fracking protests.
Three anti-fracking campaigners are due in court tomorrow (Tuesday) in what is believed to be the first trial for an alleged breach of a protest injunction granted to a UK onshore oil or gas company.
The inquiry into Ineos shale gas proposals continues to hear about planning issues today..
Work to finalise policies that will shape fracking in North Yorkshire has been put on hold because of a landmark legal ruling.
