Tesla have advised West Lancashire Borough Council that all shot point firing activity was completed within the West Lancashire area covered by the survey on Saturday 6th August. They are now in the process of recovering the recording nodes.
However, the survey is not due to complete until 13th August so be aware!
Communities in the survey area are galvanising themselves into action ahead of any announcement that Aurora has applied for planning permission to carry out exploratory drilling. Aurora have said:
“Should the survey be encouraging it is likely that Aurora will seek planning permission to drill one or two exploratory wells.”
We will be watching carefully for any application whilst continuing to raise awareness in all the communities that will be affected. Opposition is mounting fast as communities have witnessed the seismic survey.
Many public meetings will be organised in the coming weeks!
