IGas Energy plans to construct a shale gas exploration site off the A634 between Barnby Moor and Blyth. Initially IGas plans (PDF) to drill one well to core sample the shale, as well as a number of small monitoring boreholes in vicinity.
French utility company GDF Suez has a 25 percent stake in IGas’s licence block covering the area, PEDL 200. Privately owned multinational chemicals company INEOS has a 20 percent stake in the licence block. The area is in the Gainsborough Trough, a geological formation where the Bowland Shale is thought to contain gas that could potentially be extract. However, this would require coating the area in thousands of fracking wells.
