Cuadrilla update on Bowland exploration programme

As part of its ongoing evaluation of its exploration sites in Lancashire, Cuadrilla has announced that no further work will take place at its Preese Hall site, near Weeton. The company will apply for an extension to the current planning permission, in order to allow time to seal the well and return the site to its former condition.

The company has also published details of its proposed programme to restore the Anna’s Road site, near Westby, to its prior condition, as announced earlier this year. Restoration work at Anna’s Road will be completed by the end of July 2014, at which point the site will be restored to its original greenfield status.

Following on from recent public information events held in the Fylde, the company expects to be in a position to announce its proposed new sites for the next stage of its exploration programme early in 2014.
