INEOS Fracking Plans Revealed – 396 Wells Per Licence Block
Documents published by Ineos with a tender advert for seismic surveying have revealed the scale of drilling they envisage for production. The diagrams made by the company show an ideal scenario, drilling 10 wells per square mile. This is higher even than the U.S. shale gas average of 8 wells per square mile. The impacts of this industrialisation; pipelines, waste facilities, processing plant and compressor stations, along with huge numbers of HGV movements (5,000 per well) and pipelines for gas wells that only last 3-5 years is what U.S. communities are suffering with right now.
With 30 sites in each licence block and 12-14 wells per site, Ineos ideal scenario would see 396 wells drilled in each 100 square kilometres. (38.6 square miles). This gives the figure of just over 10 wells per square mile.
INEOS’s has already committed to drilling 20 wells in 15 licence areas within five years. Of these wells, 13 would be fracked.
