IGas businesses have been operating in the UK for over three decades and we pride ourselves on being a good neighbour, placing the community and local relationships at the heart of everything we do. Established in 2008, the IGas Community Fund supports community-led organisations that can make a real difference, helping to improve amenities locally. Since the start of the fund, IGas has awarded almost £1,000,000.
To be eligible for an award, projects must be able to demonstrate real community impetus and benefits, for example, organisations that involve a broad span of the community, education and skills development, or projects that celebrate and protect local heritage and the environment.
We are now inviting applications for 2018. Click here for more information.
The industry, through its representative body UK Onshore Oil & Gas (UKOOG) has agreed with Government to pay £100,000 to the community local to each exploration site where it has been granted full planning and regulatory permissions to hydraulically fracture an exploration well.
An independent Community Benefit Fund will be appointed which will distribute the money to community projects to be agreed with the community local to the site.
