Welcome to Backing Fracking

We are a residents collective, made up and led by ordinary people from around the UK that support the extraction of Britain's indigenous onshore shale gas in order to create better jobs, on better pay and with better prospects in parts of the country that could really benefit, like Blackpool and Preston in Lancashire. 

Additionally, we believe that it makes economic and environmental sense to use our own gas rather than import so much from overseas, in particular Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from places like Qatar.

On these pages, you'll find the facts about fracking as we see them, based on years of searching for the truth between the industry's own PR on the one hand and the propaganda of opponents on the other.
