Another Admission – UK Fracking Company Admits They Are Causing Earthquakes

By Nick Jardine –

Following seismic tremors in North-West England this Spring, the firm exploring for natural shale gas in the region has admitted that the disturbances were caused by the controversial exploration process of fracking.

Fracking involves cracking or fracturing rock, containing trapped shale gas, by using pressurized liquid. Shale gas is an increasingly important energy resource though there have been claims that it is worse for the environment than coal, largely due to the fracking process.

A press release from Cuadrilla Resources, who were responsible for exploration in the region, reported that:

“The hydraulic fracturing of Cuadrilla’s Preese Hall-1 well did trigger a number of minor seismic events.“The seismic events were due to an unusual combination of geology at the well site coupled with the pressure exerted by water injection as part of operations.”

The company did add that the chances of such an occurrence happening again would be slim. It predicted that a worse case scenario would result in an earthquake measuring no more than 3.0 on the Richter Scale. Other European countries are also starting to look towards shale gas. Poland announced recently that it wanted to achieve “gas security” by 2035, shedding a dependence on Russian natural gas.

If I’m reading between the lines correctly, does this mean that WE  HAVE REACHED PEAK SHALE GAS in the west in that the Fracking Process used to extract it is TOO DAMNED DANGEROUS as well as too expensive to be of any viable use to anyone (though this doesn’t affect the gold extraction process which poisons third world countries where it is mined)?

Time to face reality, idiocracy, there’s a big round electromagnetic Sun up there that wants to give us INEXAUSTIBLE ENERGY for millennia.

Accept this fact and Free Energy is ours for this Free Planet to truly benefit from.

From WUW – On the 5th of November 2011 it was confirmed by  U.S Army and the U.S. Geological Survey that fracking creates earthquakes. Please read our posting on this  here
