Wressle Development Planning Appeals Decision


Union Jack Oil plc ("Union Jack" or the "Company"), a UK-focused, onshore oil and gas production and exploration company, can advise that the Planning Inspectorate has issued its decision in respect of the Wressle Planning Inquiry.  The decision made by the Inspector is to reject the appeals by Egdon Resources plc (the "Operator") on behalf of the Wressle joint venture partners against the two planning refusals by North Lincolnshire County Council's Planning Committee in respect of the development of the Wressle oil discovery in licences PEDL180 and PEDL182.

However, the Planning Inspectorate has advised that it did uphold the Operator's appeal on behalf of the Wressle joint venture partners against the decision to refuse the application to retain the existing planning for the well site, which is now retained until the 28 April 2018.

David Bramhill, Chairman of Union Jack, said:

"The Wressle joint venture partners will now take the opportunity to consider in detail the reasons for the refusals as contained in the decision notice and review the options available to us and will provide a further update in the next few days."
