Cuadrilla has announced it plans to submit a planning application to Lancashire County Council to hydraulically fracture a well at its Anna’s Road site. Cuadrilla began to drill at the Anna’s Road site, and proposes to complete a vertical well with a horizontal extension there later this year, subject to planning approval.
Before Cuadrilla submits the planning application to Lancashire County Council, the company would like to give residents living in the area around the site an opportunity to find out more about what is involved in the hydraulic fracturing and flow testing process.As part of this, Cuadrilla is holding a Public Information Day on Friday, 1st February, at Pipers Height Caravan Park in Westby, from 16.00 to 20.00, where members of senior management will be on hand to talk with residents on a one-to-one basis.
Francis Egan, Cuadrilla’s CEO, said:
Hydraulic fracturing and flow testing is a key part of the on-going exploratory process of assessing how much shale gas can be viably recovered. It is important that residents feel well informed about our operations and our Public Information Day gives the opportunity for local residents to talk to us about our work. We are committed to engagement with the communities we work in and to maintaining the highest environmental standards.
