IGas Announce Fracking Intentions in Cheshire

According to an article on The Planner’s website, the oil and gas exploration company IGas has submitted a scoping request to Cheshire West and Chester Council.  IGas are to begin preparing a planning application for a temporary well site on land in Elton.

A statement from IGas about the application can be found on their website 

IGas has proposed one new well to be drilled vertically and then horizontally. The company also wants to hydraulically fracture and flow test the target formation to assess the flow potential of the well.  IGas said it would undertake community consultation as part of the planning process before submitting a full application and will participate in a community liaison group working together with the local parish councils.

Quantus offer the full range of commercial and residential planning reports alongside energy and infrastructure reports from Groundsure, Landmark and FCI.
