Granting a variation to Crogga's licence to drill for oil in Manx waters would go against the will of Tynwald, according to the Isle of Man Green Party.

Crogga has asked to begin drilling before completing a 3D seismic survey.

The Department of Infrastructure says it's continuing to consider the company's request and will issue a response to the political party's latest letter in due course.

Secretary Andrew Langan-Newton has told Manx Radio changes to the licence are so significantly different that it can't be considered a mere variation.
