Planning Pre-Conditions Discharged for Further Flow Testing and Drilling

Horse Hill Oil Discovery, Weald Basin, UK

 

UK Oil & Gas Investments PLC (London AIM: UKOG) is pleased to announce that it has been informed by Horse Hill Developments Ltd ("HHDL"), the operator of Horse Hill licences PEDL137 and PEDL246, containing the Horse Hill-1 ("HH-1") oil discovery, that it has now received final decision notices from Surrey County Council ("SCC"), discharging all of the pre-commencement conditions.

 

This follows the planning approval in November 2017 by SCC's Planning and Regulatory Committee to enable HHDL to carry out extended flow tests at HH-1, plus drill and test both a sidetrack from the existing HH-1 well and new well Horse Hill-2. 

 

HHDL has received the necessary permission from the Environment Agency and is now awaiting approval from the Oil and Gas Authority.
