The WSCC Planning Committee voted to grant temporary permission for exploration and appraisal for oil and gas at the existing Balcombe site in January 2018, subject to a number of amended conditions. Angus is currently preparing a further planning application for an Extended Well Test.
Angus Energy has acquired a 25% Interest in the Balcombe Licence PEDL 244 consent has been granted by the OGA (Oil and Gas Authority) and so they will be the operator at the Lower Stumble drilling site.
Our Residents Association
FFBRA was formed in 2013 and objects fundamentally to the presence of the oil and gas industry in our village on grounds of air pollution, industrialisation, water use, potential water pollution, earthquakes and health impacts, toxic waste, climate change, noise, traffic, and the imposition on our once peaceful lives of stress and strife.
