The movement was stronger than what was described as the largest-ever tremor at their Preston New Road facility last Wednesday, when a 1.55-magnitude tremor was recorded.
A second, weaker, tremor was recorded late on Friday night, measuring 1.05.
Fracking at the site was halted after both previous tremors. ■
