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

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.
