Ground-Gas Solutions Limited (GGS) is the UK’s leading environmental consultancy specialising in providing Environmental Baseline Studies (EBS), Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA), continuous ground-gas and groundwater monitoring and fugitive emissions monitoring for shale gas exploration, operational and post-operational stages. GGS’s market leading position has been confirmed by its appointment by Cuadrilla, the UK’s first shale gas exploration company, to develop and undertake continuous environmental monitoring at its Lancashire sites. We provide environmental data to independently demonstrate effective environmental management and to provide early warning of fugitive incidents should they occur.
GGS staff also have experience of research into new technologies and works closely with academic institutions to develop new techniques in ground-gas monitoring through ongoing research. The companies research into high frequency (continuous) ground-gas and other media overcomes much of the uncertainty associated with conventional periodic data which is characterised by poor temporal resolution. Continuous data provides reduced uncertainty and greater confidence in environmental control at a site. Our independent service with continuous monitoring technologies is increasingly requested by regulators and provides confidence to operators, the local community and interested third parties.
