Wood Barn Farm (South East) (Weald (Sussex/Surrey))


Activity in preparation for drilling is taking place on the site at Broadford Bridge, and UKOG plan to drill a test well into the Kimmeridge Clay shale formation which has previously been targeted at Balcombe, Horse Hill and Brockham.

UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) one of the companies behind the Horse Hill oil well near Gatwick, has done a deal with Celtique Energie and Magellan to acquire 100% of PEDL234. This includes extensions to planning and environmental permissions to drill the Broadford Bridge exploration well.

As of September 2014 the site had been constructed and the companies had 3 years to drill. Work stopped when Celtique and Magellan were in legal dispute over the site.
