A key document needed to allow small-scale fracking at Wressle in north Lincolnshire has not yet been approved.
A workover rig has been delivered to Egdon Resources’ Wressle oil site in North Lincolnshire to prepare the well for production.
The operator of the Wressle oil site near Scunthorpe has confirmed it no longer plans to use acidisation to improve production.
Consultations are underway into plans by Egdon Resources to produce oil, and possibly gas, from its Wressle well near Scunthorpe.
