The government has awarded licences for potential oil and gas extraction across England.
The map shows the areas of England covered by onshore oil and gas licences. Companies with such licences have the right to search and bore for petroleum. Many of the licenced areas overlap with potential areas of fracking for shale gas, identified by the British Geological Survey.
Use the zoom in and out function or enter your postcode to see if your neighbourhood is at risk from oil and gas extraction, and find information about your local constituency.
