As noted in our update of 7 December, a drilling campaign was underway to install additional gas extraction wells.  The drilling and connection works were completed in December and the gas field subsequently balanced and managed to incorporate the additional wells over the Christmas period.  This has much improved the site's gas collection efficiency.

The 2012 programme of engineering improvement works has now been completed.  The gas field, containment and site surface emissions are to be monitored and reassessed during January.  

Any aspects that require further engineered improvement / remediation will be programmed shortly thereafter.  Pending agreement with the Environment Agency, the new programme of works will be published on this page.
