Aurora Energy To Explore Altcar Moss By Fracking

Aurora Energy Resources  has written to residents of parts of West Lancashire and Sefton today to give notice of exploration in PEDL 164.  Aurora submitted a scoping request to LCC for a wellsite located on Altcar Moss to the north of Great Altcar village. Drilling and hydraulically fracturing of both vertical and horizontal wells will evaluate the potential to produce hydrocarbons from deeply buried carboniferous age rocks.

The proposal promises the usual public exhibition after which the planning application will be made and the expected lack of democratic choice on fracking will follow. Readers can visit the for the complete regulatory blurb. No doubt there will be some huff and puff emanating from local borough councillors Currie and Westley, and LCC O’Toole, without effect?
