We're back online!
AGM on Wednesday 29th 2017 at 8.oo pm, Bramble Hall
Although it has been another quiet year within our Parish, members have continued to keep up to date on unconventional oil & gas activities throughout the UK and further afield. We have responded to various relevant central and local government consultations and have regularly attended meetings of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on shale, in Westminster. We have also established contact with other like-minded groups across The Weald to share experiences and learn from each other. We will provide more details on these activities within the chairman's report which will be distributed before the AGM along with the agenda.
Please note this is a free of charge, members only meeting.
Join on the night for a lifetime subscription of just £1.

Experience and regulation of acidation using hydrofluoric acid in California:
Facts about hydrofluoric acid:
Nebulised hydrochloric acid incident last year in Germany (note that hydrochloric acid is much less toxic than hydrofluoric acid):
Summary: A cloud of nebulised hydrochloric acid from an Exxon Mobil gas flare near the village of Wittorf in North Germany is said to have harmed residents and vegetation, in April of last year. Inhabitants of a nearby village reported a cloud of what looked like steam and 'terrible smells' around the Söhlingen Z5 well. People even a few km away experienced breathing difficulties, coughing, headaches, red and streaming eyes, inflammation and bleeding pores, burning skin and general malaise. Some were treated in hospital. Exxon Mobil admitted they had flared off the gas 'for technical reasons'.
