Plans have been submitted to drill in to the Kellingley Colliery mine workings
Alkane has submitted a Planning Application to commence the development of the latest of its Coal Mine Methane Projects in Yorkshire. The Planning Application is for the drilling of a borehole into the Kellingley Colliery mine workings and the construction of a 6MW power generating facility on the site.
Following a detailed evaluation process a site has been identified to the north of the colliery which will provide good access to the mine workings and is close to the connection point to the Northern Powergrid electrical substation.
An application has also been submitted to the Environment Agency for the Permits required for the borehole and initial gas tests.
