Egdon Resources has announced plans for seven new oil and gas wells over the next year. Four of the wells are in Lincolnshire and have planning permission. Another, near Dorking in Surrey, also has approval after the company’s partner, Europa, won a planning appeal.
IGas announced it would submit a planning application to drill exploratory wells in Nottinghamshire in the next quarter. The company in its annual accounts released today said if it received consent it would expect to start drilling in the first half of next year.
IGas has identified a new site in north Nottinghamshire where it wants to explore for shale gas. Opponents of fracking have organised a campaign event for the weekend to raise awareness about the plans.
