MYTH BUSTING! 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 3,500 new fracking wells each and every year FOREVER to meet demand.
