Works on the installation of gas extraction boreholes started on Wednesday 28th November, with a total of nine extraction points to be drilled in strategically placed points on the site.  To date, eight of the nine extraction wells have been completed and a total length of 112 metres of 160mm pipe installed underground.  All drilling works are expected to be completed by the end of this week.

One of the nine wells has already been connected to the gas extraction system and is proving to be a success.  the remaining eight are expected to be connected and commissioned before the Christmas holidays.  Connection fo these wells involves 170 metres of 200mm carrier pipe and 180 metres of 90mm well to carrier connection pipe.

Works are very much weather dependent but under careful project management and constant overview from teh EA, works are currently on programme.
