Drilling did cause ‘earthquake’ October 15, 2011, Blackpool Gazette
CONTROVERSIAL gas drilling DID cause Fylde coast earthquakes. And now energy chiefs have sent a stark warning to shale gas company Cuadrilla Resources – stop the tremors or we will shut you down…. The meetings followed the British Geological Survey’s (BGS) conclusion two recent earth tremors felt nearby were most likely to have been caused by fracking. … And experts said Cuadrilla’s operations could be shut down permanently if proposed methods to reduce the risk of earthquakes fail. … “Any suggestion of an acceptable level of earthquakes caused by fracking should be rejected. The Government must realise it must stop treating our communities like guinea pigs and accept these techniques carry unacceptable risks to the British public.”
