Angus Energy has announced that the Environment Agency has issued its Variation Notice for the existing Saltfleetby gas field permit. The site permit now encompasses the new activities of processing and compressing of gas for direct export to National Grid. No further regulatory or planning permissions are required before First Gas.
Additionally, Angus has received an updated permit for the Brockham oil field allowing, inter alia, for the re-injection of produced water at its Brockham oil site. On completion of an upgrade project to meet DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002) requirements, production from BRX2-Y will resume at Brockham in May with associated water injection.
Consideration of the planning application for a partial abandonment of the Kimmeridge and reperforation of BRX4-Z in the Portland is to be deferred from the 23 March Planning Committee meeting advised to the next meeting on 27 April at the request of Surrey County Council.
