Fracking for shale gas


2 1


Meetings in the area are being arranged and you should have received information via a leaflet delivered to your house. Click here to download a copy


The Bowland Shale (map above) 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 us will probably have to wait until the results appear in possible planning applications for exploratory drilling in the area.
