David Aron, Managing Director of PDC, was interviewed on BBC News by Clive Myrie on the recent onshore oil discovery at the Horse Hill-1 well located near Gatwick Airport. He emphasised that estimates of oil-in place given for the region as a whole were based on a single well. He also noted that well testing and appraisal drilling would be required in order to obtain better estimates.
David stated that this was an exciting prospect with the potential for a new onshore horizon. He also mentioned that onshore oil production had taken place over many years at the Wytch Farm and Palmers Wood oil fields meeting all environmental requirements. Watch the video here
