Exploring Shale Roadshow, Burnley

Join us to find out what Lancashire shale gas could mean for your business in Burnley, Colne, Nelson and Pendle.

Hardly a day goes by when Lancashire's shale gas industry isn't featured in the news, but how much do you actually know about it?

Don't worry if the answer is 'not a lot' because informing businesses about the opportunities, jobs and investment that a successful shale gas industry will be responsible for is exactly what our Exploring Shale seminars are all about.


Delegates that attend this two-hour long breakfast event will hear about:

  • the significance of a new UK source of gas as an alternative to increasing import dependency;
  • the role gas plays in electricity generation alongside renewables, home and industry heating, and as a feedstock in chemicals manufacturing; and
  • the local supply chain roles that exist throughout the various stages of shale gas from exploration through to decommissioning and restoration.


Get the facts about fracking, gain insights into how to succeed in the supply chain, and find out how your business can benefit even if it's not directly involved in the sector.


Senior business decision-makers in companies that would like to perhaps play a part in the emerging supply chain, and those that want to understand more about the wider benefits that shale gas will bring to the local area.
