Cuadrilla explains purpose of proposed new work

The purpose of all our ongoing exploratory work is to demonstrate that natural gas can be produced from the shale in commercial quantities.

By sharing our plans for the exploratory programme, we hope that people will have an understanding of what we plan to do and why.

The British Geological Survey last week confirmed the exciting scale of Lancashire’s gas resource, and we look forward to working closely with local communities and regulators as our exploration work progresses.

– Francis Egan, Cuadrilla’s chief executive
