Preston New Road - Well PNR-1Z - Data Studies

In February 2019, the NSTA announced it would work with recognised and independent geologists and scientists with expertise in hydraulic fracturing, to carry out a scientific analysis of the data gathered during Cuadrilla’s operations at Preston New Road.  This analysis now has been completed and the studies can be found below.  In addition to the four independent studies the NSTA also completed an overview of the experience of injection induced seismicity in other jurisdictions and an interim summary report.

Under the NSTA’s licensing regulations we are committed to publishing the data six months after operations have concluded, to promote best practice and lessons learned. The data includes micro seismic event data, pumping data, produced water summary, screen shots of the hydraulic fracturing operations, a seismic event video and the final hydraulic fracture report:
