The Current Situation
In the Governments latest oil and gas licensing round (2014) the map below shows (in red) the areas of the UK where it is proposed that companies could apply for exclusive licences to explore for all types of oil and gas including unconventional gas.
A substantial area of Great Britain and Ireland has already been licensed for oil and gas exploration including fracking (blue areas).
The red areas show the areas under consideration for new licences as part of the 14th round. This could mean a give-away of 60% of the UK to fracking companies.
Do you live in an area that could be affected?
