Fracking is not a pathway to UK energy security. An average shale gas well produces 1 billion cubic feet (bcf) of gas, an average coal bed methane well (CBM) produces half of that. Divide that by UK gas consumption and you realise that we’d need to be drilling 8-10 new wells each and every day! […]
Upton Community Protection Camp has been on a site licensed to fracking companies Dart Energy and IGas for well over a year. It’s presence has defended the community from becoming a regional foothold for the industry. Now the camp faces eviction. Can you help make this attempted eviction as embarrassing and costly for the industry […]
The Kings Cliffe Landfill near Peterborough, operated by hazardous waste company Augean, is one of the few landfill sites in the UK presently allowed to accept low-level radioactive waste. The site has been mentioned as a likely destination for solid radioactive waste from fracking, if it is not stopped. The dumping of radioactive waste at […]
When communities threatened by fracking get organised to resist this invasion, they have a massive effect. Stopping any single well can be very difficult, especially with the whole weight of the state behind the fracking industry. However, in the long-term, massive investment will be required to make fracking a reality. Such investment will not be […]
Claims that UK regulators know what they are doing, understand fracking or have the capacity to monitor 100’s of fracking sites are ridiculous. The UK has limited experience with onshore oil & gas drilling with only about 20 conventional oil and gas wells drilled onshore each year. Offshore, 10,000 wells have been drilled in the […]
The much touted renaissance in U.S. industrial production does not stand up to scrutiny. The rate of growth in U.S. manufacturing is slumping and non-energy balance of trade is deep in the red. The fracking bubble has been used to bump up the figures and justify itself. When people think of industrial production, they generally […]
Fracking company IGas Energy Ltd have previously submitted scoping reports to Nottinghamshire County Council in preparation for attempts to extract shale gas from below the North Bassetlaw village of Misson. NOW the company have formally registered their intent to proceed with an application process to drill at Tinker Lane, on the A634 between Barnby Moor and […]
IGas have sent in the bailiffs and police to nail up a notice that they have acquired a 30 year lease to the site. Likely prelude to starting eviction proceedings. See Fracking Company IGas Trys To Intimidate Community In Upton for more details.
