FFBRA Response to Angus Application at Brockham
Published by Louisa Delpy on
On behalf of it’s members FFBRA (Frack Free Balcombe Residents Association) has submitted comments to the application by Angus Energy for a part retrospective application at Brockham, Surrey including the retention of the BRX4 well, the regularisation of the BRX4Z sidetrack, and the appraisal of BRX4Z using production plant and equipment within the existing site, for a temporary period of three years (part retrospective).
In summary FFBRA has asked that:
- A detailed air quality impact assessment should be undertaken by the Applicant for NO2, VOCs and H2S to support their planning application.
- The assumed sulphur content of the gas should be supported by documentation and SO2 impact re-assessed should the sulphur content prove to be more than 50 mg/Nm3.
- Once this detailed assessment has been carried out, then proper mitigation measures should be adopted if the detailed assessment concludes that the impacts are not insignificant.
- If the detailed assessment concludes that the impacts are not insignificant, the gas should be exported and not burned on site. If the assessment of H2S emissions concludes that the impacts are not insignificant, H2S should be removed from the tank vent gas using activated carbon adsorption, or scrubbing, or other equivalent equipment.
