Rathlin Energy, West Newton

Ellerby Parish Council has received the following communication from Rathlin Energy (UK) Ltd:

Rathlin Energy (UK) Ltd drilled the West Newton A-1 well in 2013, discovering hydrocarbons in the Kirkham Abbey formation. In 2019, the company successfully drilled and tested the West Newton A-2 well. This year Rathlin Energy (UK) Limited drilled and tested the West Newton B-1 well to appraise the hydrocarbons discovered in the West Newton A wells. More »

The results of the WN-B1 well mean that any planning applications for the potential WNC and WND sites will be deferred pending further evaluation.

The two wells drilled to date at the West Newton A site have confirmed the presence of a significant hydrocarbon accumulation in the Kirkham Abbey formation underlying and adjacent to the site. Rathlin Energy (UK) Ltd is now intending to submit a planning application to extend the West Newton A site, test, appraise and produce from the two existing wells and drill, test, appraise and produce from up to six (6) new wells.

As part of the company's commitment to ongoing dialogue and communication, the team wants to take into account local stakeholder views and gain feedback on the proposals. The organisation would normally do this through an information day at a local venue, but current COVID-19 restrictions prevent this. Instead, the team has developed an online consultation event which you can preview here: https://consultation-wna.rathlin-energy.co.uk

This online public event for local residents will run for seven days from 9am Monday 22 March to 9am Monday 29 March. Stakeholders and interested parties can view the exhibition panels, watch videos from the company's team of experts (along with other related material available in the public domain) and give feedback on the plans. » Less

Parish Council meetings

The parish council intends to hold its annual meeting on 24th May 2021 in the Methodist church.

The annual parish meeting will take place prior to the parish council meeting, starting at 7.00 p.m.

Although parishioners are entitled to attend these meetings and Covid precautions are taken, it may be necessary to restrict attendance in accordance with the capacity of the meeting room. It would be helpful if anyone who wishes to attend contacts the clerk to the council so that we have an idea of numbers attending. If you wish to discuss a particular issue, please let the clerk know.
