A new study has uncovered a link between fracking chemicals in farm water and a rare birth defect in horses—which researchers say could serve as a warning about fracking and human infant health.
A statement from Cuadrilla’s Australian owners, A J Lucas Group Limited today, said:
“The business is actively engaged with other UK shale gas operators and the relevant authorities to provide them with sufficient confidence to allow the return of shale exploration activities under sensible parameters.
“Cuadrilla estimates a return to operations will not take place this calendar year.
“Cuadrilla is also reviewing opportunities within its extensive UK onshore licence acreage for ‘conventional’ oil and gas prospects that would not require hydraulic fracturing to appraise and produce.”
Officials have supported plans by UK Oil & Gas for a new drilling site near the village of Dunsfold in Surrey despite opposition from local people and councils.
