Guidance for Licensees
The following guidance is issued by Minerals and Petroleum Branch (MAPB), DETI, to assist petroleum licensees in the planning and operation of exploration activities on their licence. Some of the guidance arises from the responses to a consultation exercise carried out by MAPB after the initial offer of the licence. It should not be considered to be exhaustive but indicates the main responsibilities of the Licensee when planning and undertaking work on their licence.

Quarry firm denies selling property to fracking company

Belcoo

LOCAL construction firm Acheson & Glover has denied claims that one of its quarries in Belcoo has been purchased by Tamboran, the company that previously held a licence to frack in Fermanagh.
The issue has been highlighted by the local cross-community, campaign group, Belcoo Frack Free. They claimed on social media this week that Tamboran “have bought or are in the process of buying the top quarry from Acheson and Glover”.
In February, it emerged that Tamboran had lodged another legal bid to return. Tamboran Resources (UK) submitted an application to the High Court to challenge the adoption of the Strategic Planning Policy Statement, which was published last September and included a presumption against fracking in the North. It is the third application for judicial review proceedings from Tamoran since its licence was terminated in 2014, with two others still ongoing. Continue reading

Shale of the century – the future for fracking in Ireland
http://sluggerotoole.com/2015/03/01/shale-of-the-century-the-future-for-fracking-in-ireland/

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking” as it has become universally known, is a technique for extracting reserves of oil and gas that would be otherwise impossible or uneconomic to extract. The technique, which involves injecting rock with a mixture of water, chemicals and sand, has become one of most contentious issues in British and Irish politics. Advocates of fracking say that more widespread use of the technique could bring cheaper energy and reduce reliance on (not always friendly) foreign suppliers. Opponents point to a range of potential harmful impacts on the environment, associated possible risks to human health from polluted groundwater, and even an increased risk of earthquakes due to increased seismic activity.
Locally, it is unlikely that there will be much fracking activity any time soon.  The Australian company Tamboran, who were granted a licence in 2011 to look for shale gas in County Fermanagh, had their licence revoked in September 2014 with no drilling having taken place. Scotland announced a moratorium in January 2015, and there has been no activity in the Republic of Ireland. Continue reading

Sinn Fein – Conference – Enniskillen – Fifty grades of clay and other fiction.

Fifty grades of clay and other fiction.

Just back from the Sinn Fein Fracking Conference at the Lough Erne Hotel in Fermanagh.. well if its good enough for Putin , Cameron and the rest of the G8 then it’ll be as we say in Fermanagh – grand job.

One of the key messages for me was from Professor Ingraffea who said we must not look at ‘fracking’ but describe this industry in terms of conventional or unconventional, and that ANY well that targets unconventional (tight) reservoirs is an unconventional well. Indeed this is industry parlance.  Unconventional wells are those which target Shales, tight sandstones and also coals (Coal bed methane). Continue reading

Gillen D’Arcy Wood, “1816, The Year without a Summer”
http://www.branchcollective.org/?ps_articles=gillen-darcy-wood-1816-the-year-without-a-summer

Abstract

The so-called “Year Without a Summer”—1816—belongs to a three-year period of severe climate deterioration of global scope caused by the eruption of Mt. Tambora in Indonesia in April, 1815. With plummeting temperatures, and disruption to major weather systems, human communities across the globe faced crop failures, epidemic disease, and civil unrest on a catastrophic scale. In cultural terms, the dreary summer of 1816 is best known as the setting for Mary Shelley’s writing of Frankenstein, a novel whose iconic Creature offers a figure for the millions of hungry and dispossessed of Europe during the protracted climate emergency that followed Tambora’s eruption.
