We have recently made enquiries with the NFU regarding their policy cover in relation to fracking-related accidents.
They have confirmed that you are not fully covered if there is an accident/contamination on your land which is caused by fracking activity on a third party site. There are exclusions and limitations.
We urge all farmers and landowners to check with their insurance providers (particularly if it is with the NFU) on the specific exclusions and limitations of individual policies.
Your insurance cover may not be fit for purpose.
For more information on the potential accident and contamination risks from fracking, please visit our dedicated farmers and landowners page.
