Equipment to flow test a well at the West Newton-B oil site in East Yorkshire is due to be delivered in May 2021, it was announced this morning.
Union Jack Oil announced this morning it is to lend £1m to Egdon Resources, the operator of the Wressle oil site in north Lincolnshire.
The operator of the Wressle oil site near Scunthorpe has confirmed it no longer plans to use acidisation to improve production.
An oil exploration company has said it will not inject dilute acid to stimulate flow at any of its wells in the Weald basin in southern England.
Friends of the Earth has called for a ban on the use of acid to stimulate the flow of oil and gas in onshore wells.
