Leigh Creek Energy has received the second of the three Activity Notifications (AN) required to move towards demonstrating gas flow at the Leigh Creek Energy Project (LCEP).
Leigh Creek is moving forward with the Pre-Commercial Demonstration (PCD) stage of the LCEP, with the second AN approved being the PCD process well drilling.
The first AN approved was for aboveground plant construction, while the final AN to be approved covers PCD operations including operating, decommissioning and monitoring.
“Site construction mobilisation activities commenced immediately after approval of the first AN, and are on schedule,”? said Leigh Creek Managing Director Phil Staveley.
“The drilling contractor will now commence drilling the in-situ gas (ISG) process wells, and progress towards planned gas operations in Q3 2018.”?
Once the final AN has been obtained, the PCD can be operated, representing first gas flow at Leigh Creek.
The LCEP is 100 per cent owned and operated by Leigh Creek Energy.
