Fracking for shale gas

IGas Energy seismic surveys in our area


A public information day is being held (by the exploration and survey companies) at Chester Rugby Football Club, Hare Lane, Littleton, Chester, CH3 7DB.

Thursday 8 October 2015 from 3pm to 8pm



The latest leaflets dropping through your door explaining the process of seismic surveys taking place in our area (which now seem to have extended southwards from Helsby to Tarvin) omit one essential word from the leaflets and that is FRACKING.


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 are in the process of being carried out in the areas of Ince, Stoke, Thornton-Le-Moors, Little Stanney, Elton and Frodsham Marsh and now extending southwards towards Tarvin.

Your answers will:
1 Guide us in any potential purchase of the pub by the residents of Guilden sutton should itever become available on the market

2 Pprovide evidence of community and wider use in any discussion with the local authority over a possible change of use
