Creating jobs, investment, new skills and community initiatives as a result of shale gas exploration is very important to us and, as a Lancashire based company, in 2016 we launched our “Putting Lancashire First Commitments”, publicly signed by our CEO, Francis Egan, as a firm commitment to the county which ensures that Cuadrilla puts Lancashire first in terms of the benefits shale gas exploration has to offer.
We take these commitments seriously and so each quarter we publicly release our Commitments Tracker, which is independently verified.
The current figures on the right cover the period 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2019.
