Rathlin Energy attempted to frack a shale gas exploration well at this site at Walkington near Beverley in East Yorkshire. The well was drilled in Aug 2013 under the guise of being purely conventional, but also penetrated the Bowland Shale to take core samples. Rathlin continued testing the well, including a mini-frac on the Bowland Shale to test whether it is possible to hydraulically fracture the formation.
