Onshore oil and gas industry disappointed by LCC decision
25 June 2015
Ken Cronin, Chief Executive of UKOOG, said today:
"We are saddened Lancashire County Council has rejected this application but it was expected given the officials' report. The objections to this development are on narrow local, site specific issues related to traffic and on all the substantive environmental and safety matters relating to drilling of the well and hydraulic fracturing, the officials supported this application."
