Brockham sidertrack BR-X4Z & FDP Addendum

Ada Zaffina made this Freedom of Information request to Oil and Gas Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Oil and Gas Authority,

I refer to FOI-2017-0019:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/3...
which clarified that the OGA approved drilling of sidetrack BR-X4Z based on incomplete information provided by Angus Energy (namely only the letter from Surrey County Council dated 12 Dec 2016, which left it open to interpretation whether drilling was allowed or not, but not the letter from SCC dated 14 Sept 2016, which didn’t leave any room for doubt that there was no permission to drill).

This has become a matter of public interest and I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:

1. Copy of notes or minutes from meeting with other regulators that took place on 13 Feb 2017.
2. Clarification on whether and what decision the OGA arrived at (by the time the OGA responds to this FOI) on Angus Energy's submission of Field Development Plan (FDP) Addendum to commence production from the Kimmeridge layers at its Brockham Oil Field, Production License 235. Production from the Kimmeridge layers is to be achieved via sidetrack BR-X4Z - the subject of planning dispute between Angus Energy and Surrey County Council.
3. Copies of any material correspondence regarding sidetrack BR-X4Z between the OGA and other regulators or between the OGA and Angus Energy.

Yours faithfully,

Ada Zaffina
