NEW SHALE GAS SUPPLY CHAIN PORTAL LAUNCHES WITH CONTRACTS WORTH £3MILLION BEING TENDERED

The North & Western Lancashire and East Lancashire Chambers of Commerce, with the support of Cuadrilla, are pleased to launch an upgraded Shale Gas Supply Chain portal now that work has begun at Cuadrilla’s exploration site.  With contracts worth in total approximately £3 million being tendered in the first quarter of 2017 there is plenty of opportunity for local suppliers to benefit from shale gas exploration.

Babs Murphy, CEO, of North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce said:

“We are pleased to have helped develop an online site which will be a true engagement tool for local businesses, providing an effective communication platform for Cuadrilla and the potential local supply chain.”

The new supply chain portal will enable the local supply chain to register their interest in the Shale Gas industry, specifying their areas of expertise and qualifications.   The site will also keep up to date with the latest developments with the exploration programme and the quality and safety standards required. Business opportunities and invitations to tender will be updated on a regular basis.

Francis Egan, CEO of Cuadrilla, said:

“This is a great opportunity for local businesses to engage directly with our shale gas exploration operations and ensure that millions of pounds of spend remains in the county supporting local jobs.”

To date over 700 companies are registered on the current supply chain portal since its launch almost two years ago. However to update registration to the database and view tenders going forward, businesses will be required to re-register their interest by clicking onto the following link www.shalegaslancashire.co.uk

Details of local companies will also be made available to any key contractors not based in Lancashire, who will also have their own local procurement requirements.
