Ireland and fracking
|This article is part of the FrackSwarm coverage of fracking.|
In Northern Ireland, Tamboran Resources has tested sites in County Fermanagh which they claim could supply gas to Northern Ireland for years to come. Tamboran Resources also has a license for gas exploration and plan to proceed hydraulic fracturing in the Lough Allen basin area of County Leitrim. The CEO of Tamboran Resources has declared a “zero-chemical hydraulic fracturing” pledge, but that has been declared as illusionary.
The Protest group "No Fracking Ireland" has been set up by locals of counties Leitrim, Roscommon, and Sligo, with petitions against hydraulic fracturing ongoing.
