Address: Fosham Road, Marton, Hull, HU11 5DA

Map and exact location here.

Well depth: 3,250m (below the Bowland Shale)

After a summer of disasters & gas leaks in 2014, 19 breaches of Permit in 4 months, an HSE investigation & the EA resorting to Enforcement Action, Rathlin Energy have abandoned this well site.

And submitted an application for West Newton B, where presumably they want to try again.
