Ineos Shale: We Won't Drill If We Can't Prove It's Safe
Onshore UK-focused energy company Ineos Shale confirms it will not drill any of its prospects if it cannot prove that its drilling and aftercare operations will be safe.

Onshore UK-focused energy company Ineos Shale has confirmed that it will not drill any of its prospects if it cannot prove that its drilling and aftercare operations will be safe.

 

 

The statement was made in a live social media Q&A session, which was hosted by the Derbyshire Times newspaper.

In the Q&A, Ineos answered questions about why it had chosen to undertake operations in specific areas and repeatedly outlined its focus on the safety of any planned work.

 

 

Ineos Shale holds licence interests across North and South Yorkshire, the East Midlands and Cheshire.

In addition to gathering geological information through 2D and 3D imaging technology, the company is now also planning to carry out some exploration drilling, known as coring wells, which will provide detailed information about rocks below the surface.

Ineos has championed the benefits of a local shale gas sector, claiming such an industry would be good for energy security, addressing climate change and job security.

The energy firm revealed that a local shale sector could provide as many as 64,000 new jobs.

 

 

Ineos has previously told Rigzone that it believes energy provision is currently a key issue for the UK
