September 9, 2019

We thought it timely to provide another general update on activity ongoing at our shale gas exploration site in Preston New Road, near Blackpool, and in the business generally over the past week.

This week we are continuing programmed well operations at Preston New Road, so if you live nearby or are passing you may notice that equipment is running on the site. This is not a resumption of hydraulic fracturing, which is currently subject to technical review by ourselves and our regulators. We are actively continuing to monitor and verify the integrity of the wells and continue sampling activities.

Away from site, we are visiting local people who have raised concerns about minor damage to their property which they consider may be linked with the seismicity experienced on August 26, 2019.

We are working hard to keep people updated and particularly those in direct contact with us. We are updating our website and social media channels regularly so please do follow us for all the latest news.
