Caption

A test drilling site for shale gas at Preese Hall Farm near Blackpool, Lancashire, UK. The gas is contained within layers of shale rock and is released by a controversial process known as Fracking, where liquids are pumped into the rock under high pressure to shatter the rock and release the gas. Recently the process was halted when it was thought it was responsible for two small earthquakes in the area.
