Cuadrilla launches ePortal to share enviromental monitoring data for its Preston New Road exploration site

Cuadrilla has launched an online ePortal to allow members of public to view the status of environmental monitoring of its shale gas exploration site at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton.

The design of the portal has taken into account environmental priorities set out by local people during the public consultation which was undertaken for the site’s planning application.

Francis Egan, CEO of Cuadrilla, said:

“After listening to local people’s views we are pleased to provide an easy to use online ePortal. This will allow the public access to the environmental monitoring data that we are gathering to assure the local community that our operations at Preston New Road are being conducted in an environmentally responsible manner. We are the first onshore oil and gas operator in the UK to launch an initiative such as this.”

The ePortal allows users to look at data collected at a variety of monitoring stations around the site, put in place to monitor ground and surface water and air quality measurements, as well as information on the traffic flows of heavy goods vehicles to and from the exploration site. Noise monitoring data will also be added on the ePortal once Cuadrilla starts drilling on the site and daily seismic monitoring data will also be viewable during fracking operations. Information on the ePortal will be updated on a monthly basis.

To view a demo of the ePortal explained by Cuadrilla’s Planning, Permitting and Environmental Manager, Nick Mace, follow this link.
