Group to challenge Sussex licence extension in the courts

A community group has given notice that it is planning a legal challenge to the extension of an oil and gas exploration licence in West Sussex.

Keep Kirdford and Wisborough Green, which successfully opposed plans for exploratory drilling by Celtique Energie in 2014, has sent a legal letter to the Oil and Gas Authority, the organisation responsible for licences.

The letter argues that the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) breached regulations when it granted an extension of two years to the initial term of Petroleum Exploration and Development Licence PEDL234.

The group is seeking a judicial review of the decision and is calling for the extension to be quashed.
