Two years after the UK’s strongest fracking-induced earthquake, there’s no agreement on how to manage shale gas risks, an exploration company said today.
IGas should not be allowed to dispose of radioactive wastewater in a well at its Singleton oil site in the South Downs, campaigners have argued.
IGas has been granted a mining waste permit for two exploration wells at its proposed shale gas site at Springs Road, Misson, north Nottinghamshire.
27th June 2014 Public Health England is standing by its conclusion that fracking has a low risk to human health if properly run and regulated. But the organisation raises concerns about the density and location of drilling and abut bore-hole integrity. It repeats that robust regulation is essential.
