Hydraulic Fracturing Sites require 12 months of Dissolved Methane Monitoring in Groundwater
Environment Agency Guidance to Oil and Gas Sector, August 2016
In new guidance to the Oil and Gas Sector (August 2016)1, the Environment Agency (England) strongly advise that in order to obtain consent for high volume hydraulic fracturing, 12 months of baseline methane monitoring in groundwater needs to have been undertaken.

Since November 2012 I have been working on a UK Aid project funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in which my role has been to assist, with others, the Ministry of Water Resources to develop a pilot groundwater monitoring network in The Rokel-Seli River Basin.
