Methane smapling
The BGS has initiated a science-based environmental monitoring programme in The Fylde,Lancashire where planning applications were submitted by Cuadrilla for the development of shale gas. This monitoringis independent of the industry and regulators and represents the first independent, integrated monitoring programmeto characterise the environmental baseline in an area subject to interest from the shale gas industry.
