This week the Clear Solutions team have been on a field trip to the Bowland basin in North West England. The Bowland basin contains a large continuous gas resource and forms the key part of the carboniferous Pennine petroleum system.
The Clear Solutions team had been to look at the stratigraphy, lithologies and structural features of the surface out crops which are direct analogues of the sections drilled by Cuadrilla.
Emphasis the features and geology are being evaluated by Clear Solutions to ensure that operators get optimum drilling performance on future exploration/development work.
