Crogga applies to vary gas extraction licence

DoI yet to make a decision on application

A company that hopes to start drilling for gas off the Island's coastline has applied to vary its licence.

The Department of Infrastructure has confirmed it's received an application from Crogga to vary the timing of its activities.

The DoI says the request is under consideration, with a decision yet to be made.

Crogga, which currently has a licence to explore for gas off Maughold, recently announced plans to begin drilling for gas in 2023.
