UK Oil & Gas PLC (LON:UKOG) Arreton & Godshill Project Overview

There will be two separate planning applications submitted to the Isle of Wight Planning Department in 2020. The Arreton application is more advanced than that of Godshill, but the feedback received during this event will assist in the completion of both applications.

Subject to the applications being approved, it is yet to be decided if the two projects are to be treated as individual projects running independently of each other but not necessarily at the same time, or alternatively, as a concentrated co-operative approach with benefits of scale and efficiency in an attempt to minimise disruption during mobilisation on and off the island.

For the purposes of this public event, it is assumed they are one project with one mobilisation onto the island and one demobilisation off the island. Both sites will be constructed individually.

The drilling rig and associated equipment will then mobilise to the first site and complete the drilling programme. The rig will then move to the second site and complete the drilling programme. The table below sets out the four phases of development at each site location, together with the anticipated works involved.

 

 

ARRETON: SITE AND SURROUNDINGS

This site is privately-owned and currently worked as agricultural land. The proposed development comprises a new temporary well site set back 400m from the Newport to Sandown public highway (A3056) accessed by a new temporary highway junction and internal vehicular track.

Views of the site from the north, east and south are restricted by the undulating landscape and mature hedgerows that form field boundaries and highway verges. The wider area has the appearance of a worked landscape supporting intensive agricultural practices, a large scale renewable energy installation and non-agricultural commercial uses.

The land immediately to the east supports the Wight Farm Anaerobic Digestion Energy Power Station and land to the west supports the Blackwater Quarry and ancillary uses connected to the working of aggregates.

The nearest residential dwellings are 600m to the south-west on the A3056. The nearest farmsteads are Great East Standen Manor and Little Sullens, 700m and 950m to the north respectively. The village of Arreton is 1km to the east, Merstone 1km to the south and Blackwater 1.6km to the west. Rookley is 2.7km to the south-west and Newport is 3.8km to the north-west.

 
GODSHILL: SITE AND SURROUNDINGS

This Site is privately-owned and currently worked as agricultural land. The proposed development comprises a new temporary well site set back from Whitwell Road, behind hedge screening.

Open agricultural views surround the site with the nearest residential dwelling situated 400m to the northwest on Merryl Lane.

The site is situated between the settlements of Godshill, 1km to the north, and Roud 600m to the south. Whitwell is 2.5km to the south, Wroxall 3km to the east and Rookley 3.5km to the northwest.

The River Yar to the west of the site runs north-south, parallel with Whitwell Road. A new agricultural farm building has recently been built to the south of the proposed site by the landowner.

There will be two separate planning applications submitted to the Isle of Wight Planning Department in 2020.

The Arreton application is more advanced than that of Godshill, but the feedback received during this event will assist in the completion of both applications. Subject to the applications being approved, it is yet to be decided if the two projects are to be treated as individual projects running independently of each other but not necessarily at the same time, or alternatively, as a concentrated co-operative approach with benefits of scale and efficiency in an attempt to minimise disruption during mobilisation on and off the island.

Each site application is for a period of 3 years only. The well sites are temporary structures, designed to be removed without any trace of their prior existence. Once exploration is complete the site will be returned to its original topography and land use.
