A 3D geological model of post Carboniferous strata in the south Fylde area of the West Lancashire Basin, Blackpool, UK.   The study considered the Bowland Basin, northwest England, with fracking of the Bowland Shale at ∼2, m depth and the shallow aquifer being the Sherwood Sandstone at ∼– m depth. Of the 91 scenarios, 73 scenarios resulted in tracked particles not reaching the shallow aquifer wit years and 18 resulted in travel times less.

Lancashire and Cheshire Basins Regional summary. In Lancashire and Cheshire, 23 sites have been sampled for methane in three aquifers, the main aquifer being Permo-Triassic sandstone. The Environment Agency also holds extensive methane data across the region.

The Triassic Sandstone aquifer is present in a series of deep basins throughout the UK including Carlisle, eastern England from Yorkshire to the Wash, the Fylde coast in north west England, the Cheshire Basin, Shropshire, Worcestershire, and southern England from Hampshire to Dorset.

It extends from Cumbria in the north and includes parts of Staffordshire to the south, parts of North Yorkshire in the east and Merseyside to the total, nearly 7 million people live and work in the North West and the district includes large urban areas such as Liverpool and North West river basin district has a rich.

The potential for exploiting geothermal energy in the United Kingdom on a commercial basis was initially examined by the Department of Energy in the wake of the oil crisis. Several regions of the country were identified, but interest in developing them was lost as petroleum prices fell.

Although the UK is not actively volcanic, a large heat resource is potentially available via shallow. The Cheshire Basin (Figure 1), located to the south and southwest of Manchester, is a large Mesozoic sedimentary trough with a substantial infill of Permo-Triassic red-bed sandstones (Gale et al.

A western arm includes the Stafford and Cheshire basins, West Lancashire and the Carlisle Basin - the latter are connected at depth beneath the Irish Sea. The group is most thickly developed within the Cheshire Basin (which also extends southwards into north Shropshire) where it attains a thickness in excess of m.

In the west of the county, the West Lancashire basin is in effect a landward extension of the East Irish Sea Basin. The area is threaded by numerous broadly north-south aligned normal faults thought to have been active during Permo-Triassic times and perhaps later, in.

The Region is an area of enormous variety. The plains of Cheshire and Lancashire are bounded by the Welsh hills and the Irish Sea to the West, and the foothills of the Pennines to the East.

In the North the Cumbrian mountains provide a massive barrier to any form of communication in that direction. Several large rivers flow through the Region. Characterization of permeability distributions in six lithofacies from the Helsby and Wilmslow sandstone formations of the Cheshire Basin, UK.

The highest concentrations were found in the Cretaceous aquifers of the Weald Basin, a known area for occurrences of methane gas in the shallow subsurface. The new survey covers the majority of principal aquifers in Britain, including the Chalk, Great Permo-Triassic Sandstones, Carboniferous Limestone, and the Lower Greensand.
