Celtique Energie drops shale drilling plans comes after infrastructure bill set new restrictions on oil and gas exploration in conservation areas, reports BusinessGreen
Energy company Celtique Energie has dropped plans to test for shale oil in two sites in West Sussex, after the government announced a last-minute change to the law that would ban drilling in national parks.
The South Downs National Park Authority and West Sussex County Council unanimously rejected plans for exploratory shale oil and gas wells at Fernhurst and Wisborough Green last year.
