IGas Statement- 05/02/2016
Between September and November 2015 IGas undertook a significant 3D seismic acquisition programme in the North West covering an area of 110km², this included the area around its sites at Duttons Lane and at Salters Lane in Cheshire. That data is in the processing and interpretation phase, the full results of which will determine the Company’s future exploration and appraisal work programme in the area.
Having considered some early results from this recently acquired 3D seismic survey and following a review of its coal bed methane (CBM) exploration work programme in the area, IGas has concluded that the sites at Duttons Lane and Salters Lane do not meet its criteria for commercial CBM development. IGas has therefore decided not to progress with these CBM exploration wells under the current planning permissions.
The land at Duttons Lane will now be returned to its former state including rectifying the damage caused to the area by the protest camp and the protestors.
