At the moment, Cuadrilla is simply exploring to find out how much gas is trapped within the rock and how much of this we may be able to extract. If we want to continue to production of gas, we will have to go back to the Government and Lancashire County Council for permission to set up permanent sites.

In the meantime and as part of our commitment to being a good neighbour, we will be communicating with local people and their representatives to make sure the community is directly informed about our operations.

We have a dedicated Freephone Information Line and online contact form to answer any queries you may have about what Cuadrilla is doing.
