Following the recent 14th Onshore Licensing Round, Aurora Energy Resources Limited, a UK company based in Aberdeen, holds four Petroleum Exploration and Development Licences (PEDLs) covering ~445km2 (110,000 acres) across Lancashire,  Merseyside and Greater Manchester, within the heart of the Bowland Shale exploration area.

The North West has a long history of oil & gas exploration and production stretching back over 70 years.  Many local residents will remember the oil wells near Formby.  The recent recognition by the British Geological Survey of the potential for significant gas resources in northern England provides an opportunity to open a new chapter in the hydrocarbon story of the region.

The UK is highly experienced in the regulation of oil & gas activity, both onshore and offshore, and the public can have confidence that any future activities will be regulated effectively by the appropriate independent bodies. 

Aurora is committed to exploring its licences safely and with due regard to the amenity of local residents and to the environment.
