Under a new government 'licensing round' early next year - the first since 2008 - bids for shale gas exploration licences are expected to surge, industry experts have told The Sunday Telegraph...operations in Lancashire 'triggered' two small earthquakes, one of 2.3 magnitude and the other of 1.5. Fracking has been suspended ever since. However, earthquakes of such magnitude occur in the UK almost every week, with six in the last month alone, according to the British Geological Survey.

Beneath swathes of the UK lie billions of pounds worth of shale gas. And now we can get to it...analysis at two test sites and results from earlier 'dry' holes made by firms which were looking for conventional oil and gas, is scientific and credible, says Nigel Smith of the British Geological Survey. But it is also only the beginning...

Cuadrilla Resources believes there are 200 trillion cubic feet of 'shale' gas in the Bowland basin, which could result in a Lancashire gas boom creating 5,600 jobs at peak production...Its 200 trillion figure has not been independently verified and often only a small percentage of a probable reserve can be extracted. Current estimates for UK shale gas potential are just 4.2 trillion cubic feet.
