UK Oil & Gas has confirmed it will submit a second planning application for its proposed exploration site at Dunsfold, south of Guildford.
The drilling rig has left Rathlin Energy’s West Newton oil and gas exploration site in East Yorkshire.
The judgement in the first trial of anti-fracking protesters accused of breaching an injunction at a shale gas site is not expected until the end of the week.
An environmental campaigner has told the High Court she breached the injunction at Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool because she was “terrified” about the damage fracking would do to her community.
Friends of the Earth has launched legal proceedings to try to force Cuadrilla to “substantially reduce” the scale of its injunction against anti-fracking protests.
Three anti-fracking campaigners are due in court tomorrow (Tuesday) in what is believed to be the first trial for an alleged breach of a protest injunction granted to a UK onshore oil or gas company.
The oil exploration site in Surrey, nicknamed the “Gatwick Gusher”, breached health and safety laws last year, DrillOrDrop has learned.
