Fracking communities to receive financial sweetener

A general view of a site where energy company IGas has permission to carry out exploratory drilling for shale gas, at Barton Moss in Manchester, on January 13, 2014Communities affected by fracking could be offered £20,000 for every well drilled under plans outlined by the government Friday aimed at easing access to shale gas. Shale oil and gas companies would only be granted access to land below 300m under the plans which ministers say would have “no negative impact on landowners”. With the average site containing 10 wells, communities could be set to receive an additional £800,000, media reports said. The payments, to be made following consultations with community groups, would come on top of the £100,000 one-off lump sum already on offer to pro-fracking communities along with a 1 percent profit-share.
