INFOCENTER: Shale gas production banned by the authorities in Lancashire, UK

Lancashire county authorities denied the first of the two moves from the British energy giant Cuadrilla, seeking legal permission to start drilling for shale gas in two fields, located between Preston and Blackpool. The move was welcomed by hundreds of the demonstrators, who for the third day in a row continued protesting against shale gas production drilling in the region.

However, the majority of the activists expressed only cautious optimism about the authorities' decision. The point is that the county council ban was imposed only on the development of shale gas reserves in the area around Blackpool, while the voting on the Preston project was postponed until 29 June.

The oil & gas company Cuadrilla keeps insisting that the shale gas field development should create a significant number of new jobs in the energy sector, as well as give a powerful impetus for the economic development of Lancashire. The company also doesn't exclude its lawyers wouldn't litigate the decision of the County Council.

Meanwhile, the local residents fear that drilling would cause serious damage to the region's ecology. As a result, hundreds of activists with posters, banners and slogans "Hands off Lancashire nature!" gathered in the immediate vicinity of the County Council hall, promising they won't go away as long as the authorities do not take "the right decision".

Shale gas and oil is being extracted by the method of fracking, or hydraulic fracturing. This method of production poses a threat to contaminate local drinking water with chemicals, and can provoke an earthquake. Therefore, most European countries set a moratorium on the development of shale oil and gas deposits.

Similar moratorium was introduced in the UK in summer 2011, when after drilling, undertaken by Cuadrilla in the north-west of England, two small tectonic tremors were registered by the geologists. However, not so long ago, the moratorium expired, and the government began to issue the necessary licenses. At the same time in Scotland and Wales fracking still remains banned.
