Shale gas, the new type of natural gas, is transforming the fortunes of the gas industry in the USA. Now it has come to the UK - see this article for details. With these new discoveries it looks as though there will be plenty of gas for the foreseeable future. Not the scenario that alarmists want us to believe.

How will this affect the water table in the area?

I can't answer that one, but presumably licenses need to be given and esperts will be checking it out

Going down this path will be a huge mistake for England. I live in the heart of a shale gas drilling area in the U.S. People are sick from polluted air - polluted with benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene and formaldehyde - and polluted water. Animals have died, both pets and livestock, from exposure to the water and airborne toxins. Do not believe the industry hype! When shale gas drilling comes your way, you, your children, your pets, all you care about, will be part of the cost of doing business.
