Cuadrilla is to host its third public webcast tour and live stream Q&A session at its Preston New Road (PNR) shale gas exploration site.

Following the success of the previous tours in October and November, the latest edition of PNR Live will have a special focus on horizontal drilling into shale – which will be an industry first in the UK. This will give everyone in Lancashire, and beyond, the opportunity to see how the operations underway at the site are progressing.

The public online tour will take place at 2-3pm on Friday 8 December and people can register to view it and submit questions at Responses to key questions that time does not allow the experts to answer during the live stream Q&A will be subsequently posted on Cuadrilla’s website along with a recording of the tour for those that missed it live.

Matt Lambert, Director of Government and Public Affairs at Cuadrilla, said:

“After the launch of PNR Live earlier in the year, and the positive feedback we have received about the first two sessions, I’m delighted that we’ve been able to open up our site once again for people in Lancashire to see what is happening – especially as our work is industry leading in terms of horizontal drilling into shale in the UK.

“We intend to keep running these sessions to ensure people are updated at each phase of the shale gas exploration at Preston New Road, and our team of experts looks forward to receiving questions from the public.”
