UK shale gas explorer Cuadrilla Resources is working to address concerns raised by a report published by the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) that led to the government establishing an effective moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, hoping to reverse it.

The UK government had been a longtime supporter of the fracking industry but on Friday put in place an immediate moratorium in England after OGA's review concluded it was impossible to predict the likelihood or scale of earthquakes triggered by the process.
