The South Coast
Onshore areas of the south coast for EXPLORATION are highlighted in the blue and yellow colour patches on the map.
THESE AREAS WILL PROBABLY NEED FURTHER SEISMIC TESTING WITH 2D OR 3D IMAGING TO CONFIRM PROSPECTS before exploration.
If UKOG claims to be conventionally drilling in these areas then applications could be made to drill from the surface of any of these sites within the Areas of Natural Beauty across the whole of the south coast.
It is, however, important to note that they will use unconventional techniques, including acid stimulation.
They could also use fracking in these areas, provided they do not anticipate exceeding the specific volume of fluid that defines high volume hydraulic fracking in the Infrastructure Act definition. 10,000 cubic metres, or 10million litres or 2.2 million gallons.
Currently there have been no announcements from UKOG regarding the quantities of oil in place for the 200sq km licence.
