Location of the drilling well sites

Two deep wells have been drilled so far in our region.  They are:

  • Crawberry Hill just west of Beverley between Walkington and Bishop Burton.
    • OS map reference SE 97669,37720
  • West Newton North East of Hull, towards the coast, between West Newton and Withernwick
    • OS map reference TA 19268,39131

If fracking goes ahead hundreds of wells would be required in this region alone, all over the countryside.  This is because more wells need to be drilled than with conventional drilling to access gas in impermeable rocks, and the output from each well drops quickly (by two thirds after a year).
