Five-Quarter’s academic turned alchemist directors have no direct UCG experience but are pushing ahead with licences and speculative development plans in the UK. They have already received regional development funding and secured government backing for proposed UCG projects in the North East of England. The company coined the term ‘Deep Gas Winning’ in an attempt to shirk the negative publicity associated with UCG.
Keep an eye out for this company’s activities. Along with Cluff Natural Resources they are looking to take this dangerous and experimental technology straight to production in the UK without any trials. Possibly on a site with permitted development, somewhere between Sunderland and Amble on the North East coast or in another of their 11 licence areas.
