The “energy revolution” that has produced no gas

DRILL OR DROP?

The licensing of thousands of square miles of English countryside for fracking five years ago has resulted in no wells and no oil or gas.

Areas from the Isle of Wight and Dorset to the North York Moors were allocated to exploration companies in what was described at the time as the “start of a shale gas revolution”.

By today, under the terms of the new licences, the operators should have drilled nearly 100 wells and fracked more than 10% of them.
