Reports of felt seismicity

We are aware that a seismic event was felt and heard in the vicinity of the Eden Geothermal site shortly after 9.20pm this evening.

An investigation and analysis of seismic monitoring data have confirmed that the event was linked to testing operations at Eden Geothermal. No damage has been reported, and the event was within regulatory limits, but in order to minimise the likelihood of further disturbance, we have halted operations while additional mitigation controls are put in place.

We apologise for any disturbance that has been caused.

There is further general information about microseismicity and well testing here and we will be providing further detail soon as it becomes available. Our enquiry line 01202 898150 is open; an operator will take your message and pass it on to us.
