    look at pg 17/8
    But it doesn't say what the rules are for the US and when googling it i have found info on the UK (all mineral reserves belong to the Crown), but not a good explanation of that in the US? i get that it is you own the land you stand on, but that seems too informal to write in the exam!

    Here's two useful links if the examiners are looking for up to date knowledge and wider reading, I know they're not related to the Fylde, but they may be useful generally

    I suppose you can just contrast it to the UK - e.g. In the UK, the mineral deposit ownership is different - the crown owns the land in England and operators must therefore pay 15% tax to frack the land. However, in the USA, this is not the case. Operators can decide to frack anyway without buying the right to the land and is therefore cheaper.

    There's the RAFF, Residents Against Fylde Fracking, who are local residents who feel they've been affected or will be affected by the fracking operations, they organise meetings and events in the area to educate people on what they see as the risks

    Then the national opposition group is Frack Off, who coordinate action at sites all around the country, they organise blockades and they've made films and posters to try and get their message across

    Hope this helps!

    Basically just write about points for and against fracking that are relatively specific to Lancashire and come to a conclusion about whether you agree with their objections at the end.

    So "On one hand, I would agree with the anti-fracking movement because ......... but on the other hand I would disagree with the movement because....." (Obviously expanding points so each one is like a small paragraph)

    I write about the fact that if we were to leave they could impose trade tariff that increase the price of fuel imports and could be damaging to our economy. I then contrast this point with the fact that we import gas from Norway and oil from Qatar so EU trade tariffs may not significantly affect us in terms of fuel.

    Hope this helps a little

    I am slightly confused where people are getting the idea that the US has more gas than in the UK because in the AIB on page 8, item 3 it says that the 'Bowland-Hodder shales have the potential to form a shale gas resource comparable to the producing shale provinces of North America'
    Thanks
    Sorry I know I asked this earlier but I haven't seen anyone respond and I'm really confused.
