Fracking in Lancashire, UK Suspended after M1.1 Tremor –Report

AMR – 102902

Refer to Einstein’s Definition of Insanity!

Fracking at the UK’s shale gas site in Lancashire was stopped for a third time following a 1.1 magnitude tremor, the largest tremor recorded there so far.

The 1.1 magnitude tremor at the site in Preston New Road, Little Plumpton, was the strongest since work began at the site two weeks ago.

It followed two seismic movements of 0.8 on Friday and Saturday.

Fracking firm Cuadrilla said Monday’s tremor was no cause for concern, but it would halt fracking for 18 hours.

Drilling for shale gas at the site started on 15 October after a legal challenge failed.

“A 2.3 magnitude tremor on the Fylde coast seven years ago was probably caused by shale gas test drilling, a study found.”
