Kirkleatham Gas Well

Image

The Kirkleatham gas field, near Redcar, is a stratigraphically trapped gas accumulation in a Permian age limestone reservoir, discovered in 2006 by the Kirkleatham-4 exploration well. Gas was discovered at a depth of around 800 metres and tested at rates of up to 5 million cubic feet per day. All commercial agreements with the gas user Sembcorp Utilities and planning consent are in place to produce and sell the gas to the nearby Wilton works for use in power generation.
