Cuadrilla recently completed hydraulic fracturing operations at Preston New Road. As part of our normal responsibilities as one of the regulators of this industry, the OGA now plans to carry out a scientific analysis of the data gathered during these operations.  It is not a review of the traffic light system.


As is usual in these circumstances, the OGA will work with recognised and independent geologists and scientists with expertise in hydraulic fracturing operations to assess these data and will provide updates on our website as appropriate.
