The leading company behind exploration at the so-called “Gatwick Gusher” oil site has said all the consents are now in place to allow extended flow testing to begin “shortly”.
Kimmeridge Oil & Gas has given formal notice that it is seeking to extend the planning permissions at its exploration site at Broadford Bridge, near Billingshurst.
The media regulator, Ofcom, has not upheld a complaint by Angus Energy about a BBC report on a sidetrack oil well drilled at Brockham in Surrey.
The exploration company. UKOG, announced this morning it had suspended its well at Broadford Bridge in West Sussex, after describing observed oil flows as likely to be “sub-commercial”.
Regulations covering oil and gas developments are confusing and misleading and there are discrepancies between different agencies, a senior Surrey planner has said.
Correspondence seen by DrillOrDrop shows that the planning application submitted by Angus Energy for its Brockham oil site late last year has been found to be invalid by Surrey County Council.
Angus Energy announced this morning it would be producing oil from four wells in the Weald in southern England in the first three months of this year.
