Open and honest

Egdon looks to be a good neighbour in all of its operations.

We recognise that oil and gas exploration causes some public concern and we are committed to open and honest dialogue with communities about what our activities will mean in the local area. Egdon consults stakeholders at all stages of our operations and looks to address concerns through open dialogue.

Egdon is a member of UKOOG the representative body for the onshore oil and gas industry. UKOOG has developed the “Shale Community Engagement Charter” and should Egdon come forward with proposals for shale-gas wells we will ensure compliance with the charter. 

On 4 November 2019 the government announced that it will introduce a temporary moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for shale gas.
