"Shale gas activity in the UK is still in the exploration stage, where companies are drilling test wells. There is no experience of production operations in UK conditions as yet, although we have a long history of production of oil and gas from ‘conventional’ onshore fields. The answers to questions about the potential impacts of production operations are therefore tentative or qualified for the time being.
The supporting guides on this page provide more detail to the topics covered in the main “Facts About Fracking” booklet."
