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.
Surrey County Council has confirmed that Angus Energy submitted a planning application today for its oil site at Brockham near Dorking.
The regulator of the oil and gas industry has criticised Angus Energy over its operation at Brockham near Dorking.
