UKOOG welcomes encouraging results from Preston New Road

6 February 2019

Responding to Cuadrilla's positive initial flow test results at Preston New Road, Ken Cronin, Chief Executive of UK Onshore Oil and Gas (UKOOG) said:

"These are encouraging early results and we look forward to Cuadrilla being able to fully demonstrate the enormous potential of the Bowland Shale later this year. During the cold winter months, our dependency from non-North Sea gas rises to 64%. The sourcing of homegrown gas is therefore vital for our economy, jobs and the environment."
