In a high profile and landmark ‘fracking’ case in the Chancery Division, Ineos, a global energy and chemicals business, has successfully secured wide ranging injunctive relief to protect Ineos’s shale gas exploration interests from unlawful activity.
The legal issues ranged across the law of trespass, public and private nuisance, harassment and conspiracy. The judgment of Morgan J examined in detail the interaction between these areas of law, and the freedoms protected by Articles 10 and 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
A copy of the judgment is available here.
Alan Maclean QC and Jason Pobjoy acted for Ineos.
