– Francis Egan, Cuadrilla CEO,
The well is now closed off for the coming months as Cuadrilla applies for planning permission to come back and test flow rates. We appreciate that the Balcombe community has had to bear the strain of protest, as have our on-site and support team and contractors.
We commend West Sussex County Council and police for both facilitating peaceful protest and preserving order.”
Cuadrilla have announce that the Balcombe exploration drilling operations have now been completed. They expect to be out of the site by the 28th of September.
