A controversial operation to improve oil flow at a site in Lincolnshire has been successful, the operator said this morning.
Final consent had not yet been granted for the stimulation of the Wressle oil well in North Lincolnshire, Union Jack Oil confirmed today. But the company announced that tests on wells at two West Newton sites in East Yorkshire were expected soon.
A key document needed to allow small-scale fracking at Wressle in north Lincolnshire has not yet been approved.
The operator of the Wressle oil site near Scunthorpe has confirmed it no longer plans to use acidisation to improve production.
