This does not look good, Ogmore and I assume Southerndown could be at risk due to this idea:

Gas Fracking in South Wales

If you don't know what this has to do with trials, Ogmore and Southerndown has some of THE best Natural in the UK.
Used regularly by Ben Savage and Martyn Ashton it has stuff for beginners and pro's alike, the best bit about it is it always changes.
Anyway read that link^^

I don't think it'd necessarily affect things on land much, the fracking that was going on in Blackpool was barely noticeable - I think the actual sort of base for it all was just off the coast rather than being on-shore. I'd imagine they'd do the same there to try and keep it looking nicer?

Interesting that it's allowed here though even though it's banned elsewhere in the world. Not to mention that there were 2 earthquakes in Blackpool after it started...

Thats at least some good news Mark (not the earthquake bit).
From what I can gather its a pretty shitty process.
