This well, which is being drilled with the BDF Rig 28, is the first well drilled under the company’s accelerated drilling program.

According to the company, the Doe Green site, located between Warrington and Widnes, has steadily produced gas and generated electricity for over two years from a pilot well, DG-2.

IGas produces and markets domestically sourced gas, primarily from coal bed methane, and has licenses to extract hydrocarbons across the north of Wales and the north of England, covering an area of 1,756 square kilometers.
