Cuadrilla Pauses Hydraulic Fracturing At English Site After More Tremors

British shale gas company Cuadrilla has again paused hydraulic fracturing at its Preston New Road site in Lancashire, northwest England, after tremors were detected, the company said.

This marks the third time operations have been halted at the site following seismic activity under Britain’s so-called traffic light regulation system, since they began in October.

“A series of micro seismic events in Blackpool have been recorded on the British Geological Survey website this morning following hydraulic fracturing at our shale gas exploration site in Preston New Road, Lancashire,” Cuadrilla said in a statement.
