Regulation of Rathlin Energy’s West Newton ‘B’ Well Site

Closes 24 Sep 2021

Opened 25 Sep 2020


Rathlin Energy plans to carry out drilling and testing of the WNB-1 well at its West Newton ‘B’ well site. Environmental permits in relation to these activities were issued in 2016. They set out legally binding conditions for operation covering emissions, safe storage of waste and crude oil, and flaring of gas. The permits also include monitoring and reporting requirements.

Copies of the environmental permits are 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.
