UK’s Cuadrilla Files Injunction To Stop Trespassing At Shale Gas Site

British shale gas exploration company Cuadrilla has filed papers to a court seeking an injunction forbidding trespassing at its Preston New Road site in Lancashire, the company said May 21.

An injunction hearing will be held on May 31 at Manchester’s High Court District Registry. The injunction would replace and extend an existing injunction at the site and surrounding farmland.

The proposed injunction would prohibit unlawful obstruction of the site’s entrance and disruption of the firm’s supply chain by, for example, blockading supplier properties, Cuadrilla said.
