Financial resilience test on a PEDL holder to permit hydraulic fracking and Decommissioning Costs

We're waiting for Helen Chuntso to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

On 25th January 2018 Greg Clark

"asked the Infrastructure and Projects Authority to assess the financial resilience of the applicant, including its ability to fund decommissioning costs."

Mr Clark further stated:

"The Government considers that the financial resilience of a company wishing to hydraulically fracture is a relevant consideration. As a matter of policy, we will therefore look at the financial resilience of all companies wishing to carry out hydraulic fracturing operations alongside their application for Hydraulic Fracturing Consent."

(Ref: http://www.parliament.uk/business/public...

Therefore as Mr Clark has announced that part of the final consent to hydraulically fracture requires the applicant to have the ability to pass a 'financial resilience test' to confirm 'its ability to fund decommissioning costs', I would be grateful if you could provide the following:

1) A copy of all correspondence between BEIS and the Infrastructure and Projects Authority to agree the terms which underpin the Financial Resilience Test.

2) A copy of all criteria that an applicant is required to pass this financial resilience test, together with any grading system that will need to be applied for each area.

3) An explanation of what constitutes ' Decommissioning Costs' for the purposes of the Financial Resilience Test, to include all correspondence between yourselves and IPA / other government bodies in determining this definition.

Yours faithfully,

Helen Chuntso

FOI Requests,

Dear Ms Chuntso,

 

Thank you for your email of 14 March 2018, where you requested the
following information:

 

We can confirm that the Department holds information falling within the
terms of your request. However we need more time to consider your request.

 

Under the EIRs, we are required to respond to requests as soon as
possible, and in any case no later than 20 working days after receiving a
request. However, by regulation 7 the period of 20 working days may be
extended up to a total of 40 working days if we reasonably believe that
the complexity and volume of the information requested means that it is
impractical to comply with a request within the earlier period or to make
a decision to refuse to do so.

 

In respect of your request, we believe that regulation 7 applies.
Therefore, although we shall not be able to respond fully to your request
within the 20 working day period, we shall do so as soon as possible
within the extended period.

 

We hope to let you have a response by 14 May 2018.

 

Kind regards,

Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's handling of my FOI request 'Financial resilience test on a PEDL holder to permit hydraulic fracking and Decommissioning Costs'.

This is clearly in the public interest and withholding this information is a poor interpretation of your duty.
Full disclosure is sought and a re-examining of your procedures.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Yours faithfully,
