It has been 'pressed' that the much awaited 'fracking application' from Third Energy - a test frack at its KM8 well - was to be submitted to the NYMNPA this week,
However, reports of the 'submission' are 'vanishing' - either a digital glitch or a willbewas?
Hmmm - taken down by the BBC Radio York ... 'this story no longer exists' - "Third Energy Application to Frack submitted to National Park Authority Today" (23/05/15)
Here's a drip from Drill or Drop : http://drillordrop.com/2015/05/18/third-energy-due-to-submit-yorkshire-f...
Frack Free Ryedale: “It’s important for people to realise that if this application for a test-frack is approved, it will open the door to widespread commercial fracking all across Ryedale. Third Energy have already announced that they are planning 19 well-sites with between 10 and 50 wells on each site, and all the HGV traffic, related infrastructure, pollution concerns and noise this would entail. This would lead to the industrialisation of the countryside – and it all starts with just one well.”
After attending one of Third's previous public consultation exercises, personally am looking forward this 'test' to take place. Be there? Mind you at 9000 ft down, thats a long way down, the much awaited 'can they can't they', 'will they won't they', 'is there isn't there' would soon be over .... no pain no gain.
On the negative side, a mini - earthquake could shake the core foundations of either the NYMNPA or indeed the Vale of Pickering and indeed send the Flamingo Land flumes into hyperdrive ...
On the positive side, the test 'frack' could help set us all free ... ah yes freedom?
Will check out the NYMNPA laters, ironically, tis the SBC's Planning & Development induction training all day long, so erm bear wiv :-) wriggle

PS: As it 'appens, I checked out Third's new website last nite and no mention - but plenty on the new offshore dsicovery, PEDL's etc etc - the Southern North Sea - thats off our coast I believe, but can't quite fathom exactly where ... anyone got a map?
Ooops. Now where did I leave the Batmobile ...
