IGas has submitted plans for a new oil wellsite, close to its existing site. The oil will be extracted from the Mexborough Rock, which is a conventional sandstone reservoir that has produced oil for the existing Glentworth-K site for 60 years. The new wellsite will produce oil for up for 21 years and will include a well pad for the drilling of an appraisal well and up to seven horizontal development wells.
The proposed development will operate in a similar manner to the existing Glentworth-K wellsite and will be carried out in phases.
The planning application has been submitted to Lincolnshire County Council for the installation of the well pad and wells for the extraction of oil. The oil produced at the site will be sold to a domestic refinery.
