IGas Energy plc (AIM: IGAS)
IGas planning application in Ellesmere Port validated
IGas Energy plc is pleased to announce that its planning application for a proposed project at its site in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire has been validated by Chester West and Chester Council ("CWaC").
The proposed project is to carry out further tests on the rock formation called the Pentre Chert, including a flow test, to better understand the volumes of gas it contains. Subject to the receipt of planning consent and the relevant environmental permits, this operation will utilise the existing well and no additional drilling will be required.
The application has met CWaC's requirements in the required format and it will undergo a period of public consultation before planning officers make a recommendation to the planning committee. IGas has been engaging with various local stakeholders over the last few weeks and will hold a public exhibition as part of the public consultation.
