Fracking for shale gas
The Bowland Shale (left) is the only significant area of shale gas in the UK containing an estimated 1329 trillion cubic feet of gas. Only a small proportion of this is commercially extractable. To provide reliable estimates of where extractable reserve gas lies, wells are drilled, maps are consulted and seismic surveys are performed. Such seismic surveys have been carried out in the areas of Ince, Stoke, Thornton-Le-Moors, Little Stanney, Elton and Frodsham Marsh and are now extending southwards towards Tarvin.
The surveys have now been completed in the areas around Guilden Sutton and Mickle Trafford. Those academically or geologically interested in the outcome of what lies beneath will probably have to wait until the results appear in possible planning applications for exploratory drilling in the area. Meanwhile below is a map showing Site 1 in Mickle Trafford acquired by Star Energy Ltd (owned by iGas) and site 2 in which they have purchased an option.

The idea behind a community workshop is to provide the village with a facility that is a larger version of your own shed where you can pursue your own practical interest.
Whether you are an experienced machinist, an enthusiastic hobbyist, someone who has a pet project and no space, then perhaps you want to meet people and learn new practical skills. If so we would love to hear from you.
If you feel this would be of interest or would like more info please contact Sue on 303125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
