    Physical:
    1) Apart from the pennines, there are large areas of flat land and without any Special scientific interest status.
    Flat land - infrastructure can be put into place hence increasing potential for fracking to occur
    no SSSI means that the land isn't controlled and protected so this makes it an ideal location for fracking because there won't be any resrictions on land use. A telegraph article proposes that currently, only 6% of the proposed fracking sites in the UK are SSSI
    2) marine shales in the area are up to 5000m thick- suggests that there's a lot of shale gas that can be yielded & plentiful supply
    3) Lancashire is located near the coast so this makes exportation of shale gas easy, through large ships..rather than pipelines, or trucks which would have caused congestion

    social:
    1) some areas in lancashire such as blackpool have high levels of poverty and have faced urban decline. Also manchester ans Liverpool are very densely populated
    so there's a high availability of workforce- ideal location for fracking because many are in need of jobs so they're less likely to object to fracking
    2) Lancashire have a traditional heavy industry including mining and power generation - people are more inclined to agree to fracking because they are already use to heavy industry and therefore, less likely to be affected by the noiss and air pollution
    Thank you very much that really helps

    I'm confused about the units of tonnes of oil equivalent in P2 and P3??
    It says the unit is 'thousand tonnes of oil equivalent'. So for example does this mean the total energy consumption in P2 was 155,000 tonnes of oil equivalent or 155,000,000 tonnes of oil equivalent?

    Does anyone have any information on UK and USA comparisons such as the differences in the legislation of fracking? Or the differences in the geology and the effect this has on fracking?

    For these graphs we don't read the figures as they're presented right? So we have to calculate the differences. So for example, for renewables (figure P4), would it be 29000-25000 which is 5000?????!!

    usa: they have mineral rights on the surface, they have the licence to drill under houses, the shale gas is much shallower, allowed to get on with it. has to be sold to the USA only so the price is low also because there is so much of it

    uk: much more heavily faulted, they have to pay 100000 + 1% of revenue to locals, we have a deeper rock, many more assessments and regulations to comply with, eg we have to disclose all the chemicals that we use in the process. more assessment and checks made, governmental and court hearings.

    2. Discuss the need for fracking in the UK. (8 marks)
    3. Identify why fracking in the USA is much cheaper than it is in the UK. (8 marks)
    4. To what extent do the advantages of fracking outweigh the disadvantages? (15 marks)
    5. Evaluate the methods that Cuadrilla is undertaking to reduce the risks of fracking in the Flyde.(12 marks)
    6. Identify an appropriate hypothesis to test residents opinions about fracking as described in Item 7 and explain how a questionnaire could help you gather data to prove/disprove the hypothesis. (5 marks)
    7. Explain how an A Level Geography group might select people to answer questions about their opinions on the proposed fracking site. (5 marks)
