Regulation of Rathlin Energy’s West Newton ‘A’ well site

Rathlin Energy plans to carry out testing of the WNA-2 well at its West Newton ‘A’ well site. We have previously consulted on their applications for the environmental permits required. These were issued in April 2014 and varied in August 2019 and April 2020. They set out legally binding conditions for operation covering emissions, safe storage of waste, and flaring of gas. The permits also include monitoring and reporting requirements.


The company submitted an application for a minor technical variation to their permit in February 2020. The application related to minor technical changes which do not have the potential for significant negative effects on humans or the environment. The Environment Agency accepted the proposed changes in April 2020. A copy of the revised and consolidated environmental permit issued April 2020 is provided below.


We will regularly update this page with information from our audits and site inspections. Previously, this information would only have been held at our offices on the Public Register. Whilst that will continue, we hope that this is helpful in making information easier for you to access.
