UK officials delay key shale gas permit decision

Councillors at the Lancashire County Council have adjourned until Monday the process for deciding whether to grant shale gas firm Cuadrilla Resources a project planning permit in northwest England.

A decision was expected on Wednesday, but the Councillors decided to gather additional legal advice and deferred a vote until next week.

If approved, the shale gas project at Preston New Road near Blackpool could become Britain’s first producing shale gas site.
