UK Energy Department - No Reason to Stop Fracking

A panel of experts advising the UK's Department of Energy and Climate Change has recommended that shale gas firm Cuadrilla Resources should be allowed to continue with its controversial hydraulic fracturing ('fracking') operations at its Preese Hall site in the northwest of England, DECC reported Tuesday.
After the panel – who include a Keele University geophysics professor and a scientist from the British Geological Survey – reviewed reports detailing a number of earthquakes that occurred in April and May 2011 as a result of Cuadrilla's activities, they concluded that there is "no reason why Cuadrilla Resources Ltd should not be allowed to proceed with their shale gas exploration activities". However, the experts also recommended that hydraulic fracturing operations should continue with caution.
