Reebold Resources plc and Union Jack Oil plc said on Friday that the operators of their West Newton Oil & Gas Project onshore England intend to submit a new development application.
“Considering concerns regarding the scale of the development and other points raised by the local community, we now intend to submit a new application intended to address the scale of the development by reducing the site footprint and reducing the number of to drill wells,” operator Rathlin Energy said in a letter to local residents.
Rathlin Energy, which is 59% owned by Reebold, said it would continue to seek legal advice with regard to appealing the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s original application decision.
The council rejected a planning application for West Newton in September.
Reebold has a 56% economic interest and 16.7% direct interest in the project, while Union Jack has a 16.7% stake in it.
