It extends the permission for the well site to March 2022.
The West Sussex County Council’s planning committee agreed to extend the permission for 2 years, meaning it will now expire on March 31 2022. It was approved via a 10-1 majority vote.
“The Kimmeridge play, where UKOG holds industry-leading knowledge and an unrivalled acreage position within the sweet spot, remains of primary company interest,” said Stephen Sanderson, chief executive.
“This extension will enable us to incorporate key future well and test information into our understanding of this new play before any further appraisal of our BB-1 Kimmeridge discovery.”
