Ebberston Moor Exploratory Gas Well and Pipeline

Following extensive negotiations with the North York Moors National Park and the development of a comprehensive Environmental Statement, permission was granted to Warwick Energy for this site, which lies just outside the National Park, in December 2007. Drilling began on site by Moorland Energy in March 2009.

Following the successful gas exploration operation, application was made for the development of a gas production facility at the site and was won on appeal. The proposals are for the construction of an 8km pipeline from the existing Ebberston well site to a gas processing facility at Thornton-le-Dale, where the processed gas will then be transferred via a “hot tap” connection into an existing NTS pipeline for distribution.
