Commenting on the announced results of the 14th onshore licencing round, Richard Warren, Senior Energy Policy Adviser at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said:

“Following swiftly on from last week’s shale-related planning announcement, the positive outcome of this licencing round is confirmation that the Government is serious about shale and is getting to grips with the issue. With applications coming from 47 different companies, many of them new players, we can see a growing confidence in the sector, and the beginnings of a viable industry. There remains some distance to go, but the government looks to be making real progress in delivering the benefits of shale to the UK.”
