Cuadrilla Resources


The site in Elswick is Cuadrilla’s only permanent site and was hydraulically fractured in 1993.

Generating 1MW of electricity, gas is extracted from the sandstone formation and is sent to national grid via an on-site generator and underground cables.

Located off the main road in to Elswick, the site is visually unobtrusive, with many people in the area unaware of its existence.
