Angus Energy plc. has announced that it has received permission from the Environment Agency to drill the BR-X4Z sidetrack at its Brockham production oil field, license PL 235.
The Group will now seek the Health and Safety Executive and Oil and Gas Authority permissions needed to drill the BR-X4Z sidetrack at Brockham and will update the market in due course.
Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorius, Angus Energy’s Chairman, commented: "Receiving the Environment Agency’s permission to drill the Brockham sidetrack is an important step in the development of the Group. The upcoming sidetrack will allow the Group to increase and prolong the production from the Portland reservoir while also giving the Group an opportunity to assess the potential of, and if successful, produce from the Kimmeridge limestones and Upper Coralian layer."
