Britain's Cuadrilla produces first shale gas at English fracking site

LONDON, Nov 2 (Reuters) - British shale gas company Cuadrilla said on Friday it had seen the first natural gas flow at its site in northwest England since it began fracking operations there just over two weeks ago.

Cuadrilla told Reuters that gas flows at such an early stage of the project were evidence of the potential of future gas recovery at the site, even though the flows were small.

“This is a good early indication of the gas potential that we have long talked about,” Cuadrilla Chief Executive Francis Egan said in an emailed statement. (Reporting by Susanna Twidale Editing by Edmund Blair)
