The regulator of the oil and gas industry has criticised Angus Energy over its operation at Brockham near Dorking.
Surrey County Council is standing by its position that Angus Energy does not have planning permission for oil production from a well at its Brockham site, despite an announcement of “final go-ahead” this morning.
Angus Energy announced in the past hour that it had received approval from the Oil & Gas Authority allowing it to produce oil from a side-track well drilled earlier this year.
Angus Energy told investors this morning it was seeking the go-ahead for on-site power generation at its Brockham oil site in Surrey.
The oil company, Angus Energy, faced criticism this morning from county councillors in Surrey over its operations at the Brockham oil site near Dorking.
Angus Energy did not have permission to drill a new sidetrack at Brockham in Surrey and does not have consent for production, the county council has told an industry regulator.
Proposals by Angus Energy to protect the environment at its Brockham oil site in Surrey are inadequate, vague and subjective and raise doubts about the company’s competence, according to a local community group.
