West Newton Camp HU11 5DA

The camps are in their infancy and help with calls for support are much appreciated.

Rathlin Energy have already drilled two wells, Crawberry Hill 2700m and West Newton 3250m.  Both wells have drilled through and beneath the chalk aquifer of Yorkshire and down in to the Bowland Shale.

Rathlin Energy applied to the Environemnt Agency to conduct a mini frack on the Bowland Shale at both wells in Februay 2014.  This was granted by the Environment Agency early May 2014.  Rathlin Energy have to give 14 days notice to East Riding of Yorkshire Council before going back on either sites to do further work and tests
