Lol...lot's of fresh info posted recently and if you're fully loaded in a share you think has transformational upside, then it's best to do your research and continue to do so, and i'll consider giving up my proper job if Alba hits 5p plus. Gl ;-) ps the ongoing discussions with SCC will have little to do with the media speculation and more to do with what other planning permissions are required for the OGA to approve production, planned for Spring/Summer, and therefore the next RNS will not only confirm mutual positive clarification with SCC but very likely OGA approval as well imho....these things take time, especilally under the current circumstances. Gl Good news imminent!!! ;-) 3rd March RNS "In line with Angus's measured approach to field development, operations are in hand to install new production facilities for the well and to prepare for the production as soon as necessary OGA approval is in place. Targeted completion for production is in spring/summer 2017. Our professional team will shortly be meeting Surrey County Council to discuss the position in relation to the sidetrack and also to agree what further planning permissions are necessary in order to regularise the existing site cabins, fencing and associated structures. " 10th March RNS Update on Brockham operations Angus Energy notes the BBC London news item yesterday evening where claims were made that the Brockham X4Z well drilling was 'unauthorised'. The Company is of the firm opinion that the drilling of the BR-X4Z well, which was approved by the OGA, EA and HSE, did not constitute a breach of the planning consents. Discussions with Surrey County Council are ongoing and the Company will update the market as soon as these discussion are complete.

WHY OH WHY is it taking so long to let us know the outcome of the Planning debacle??? I thought SCC had a Planning meeting earlier this week? and we would have had a prompt update to quash any speculation!! But hey ho this is the Brian The Snail pace the way things are done in UK----and in the meanwhile potential investors maybe holding back, confidence shot at present. Moneymunch----admire your tenacity in give us all DAILY information but maybe tone it down a little, much of it does not give us fresh information. Have you a job?? You must spend hours trawling through info and then busily typing it out---or cutting and pasting. not criticizing, just a blunt observation.

Lol the master investor interview is dated 16th March, and so a little early for any comment on Brockham's status......and the fence at Holmwood has nothing to do with Alba......one thing for sure is that Alba's propects and potential look very attractive from the current low and tiny market cap.....and a mutual postive conclusion at Brockham and the SCC will see a significant jump in share price Gla holders..A very exciting 2017 ahead with undoubted stellar potential. ;-)

So the question of The Fence is still in the balance!! Because of a bloody fence the UK may not be able to get a valuable resource out of the ground??? Granted unlikely to happen( fence decision being turned down) but a decision not now being made until at least June--maybe later--- and a badly needed natural resource that will earn the UK millions, create much needed jobs is being held up by a group of swampies!! Unbelievable--what is the Minister thinking of?? and still no word of the SCC/Angus debacle---this is often typical of the UK Planning and decision making system in the UK!!!

Mellowing detractor. Gla Good news coming.;-) DRILL OR DROP? INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM ON FRACKING, ONSHORE OIL AND GAS AND THE REACTIONS TO IT Angus Energy stands by its statements on planning consent for Brockham oil site BY RUTH HAYHURST ON MARCH 20, 2017 Angus Energy has made a strong defence of its operations at the Brockham oil site in Surrey, saying it had all the consents it needed. The front page of today’s Times newspaper included an article headlined “Oil firm drills in Surrey ‘without permit’”. At 2am, Angus tweeted: “Sidetrack fully approved by all regulators & does not need planning permission – according to the SCC’s [Surrey County Council’s] own criteria” Angus Energy tweet 170320 Angus has also posted a page on its website about press reports and Brockham. It said: “We stand by our statement no breach has occurred.” The website added: “Any characterisation that Angus Energy deliberately misled its investors and the public or misunderstood clear advice is offensive, wrong and self-serving.”

Lol, ALL news is good news and now lots of new potential investors waiting in the wings........SCC have not made any complaint about Brockhams side track, Angus confirmed that they were in talks with SCC 3rd March, days before the BBC/Drill or Drop Story......the SCC letter to Angus confirmed that no new sidetrack permit was required as long as the sidetrack was drilled to original depth, and through formation and area's originally drilled.....the OGA were happy, and signed off approvals. Angus's FAQ update today confirms it's all systems go......Official clarification from Angus/SCC will see significant upside.....and OGA approval for Brockham's production will quickly follow .

FAQs: Stories in the media about Brockham 1. What is the fuss about? A BBC Environmental correspondent claimed Angus Energy ‘breached’ planning permission granted by the Surrey County Council (SCC). 2. Did you? Of course not. We stand by our statement no breach has occurred. We immediately met with the SCC as we value our working relationship and continue to work with the Council on all relevant matters. Please note: As the Council said, “we are in discussions”, they have not stated any planning harm has actually occurred. 3. But the Council told the BBC” ‘We were extremely disappointed to find out that Angus Energy has acted without planning permission and contrary to our advice and guidance so we are meeting with them this week as a matter of urgency to resolve this.” We believe this report was deeply flawed. It violated BBC’s own editorial guidelines. We will have more to say on this after we file our complaint with the BBC Director General and OFCOM. 4. Well is it true, did you act without planning permission? No. We firmly believe we have acted in a professional and correct manner and followed all permissions and guidelines from the OGA, EA, HSE and the SCC. Naturally we will continue to do so. 5. Did you perform work not covered in the SCC’s planning permission? No. We have 4 different regulators, Environmental Agency (EA), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) and Surrey County Council (SCC) each covering their expertise provided by their remit. The government’s guidelines make it absolutely clear that the remit of local councils covers the surface impact of the operations including matters such as noise, visual impact and traffic movements. All of our surface work was covered by our planning permission. We work with our local council on many important surface issues that rely on their expertise and requirements. 6. We heard a new well was drilled and that would have needed the SCC’s permission. No new well was drilled. 7. I read a website that claims you ignored warnings. The SCC’s 12 December letter cited by an environmental activist website under the freedom of information act, set out the circumstances in which a specific sidetrack needs planning permission. The sidetrack that has been drilled doesn’t fall within these circumstances and doesn’t need planning permission according to SCC’s own criteria. Despite having every opportunity at a number of meetings and in extensive correspondence, SCC has not identified any way in which the sidetrack causes any planning harm. Any characterisation that Angus Energy deliberately misled its investors and the public or misunderstood clear advice is offensive, wrong and self-serving. 8. How often do you speak with the local council? Constantly. Our meetings are as intended to resolve any misunderstanding by either party. We communicate fully with all our regulators and relevant authorities. We stand by our statements to the public, the SCC and our investors. 9. If it is not the SCC, who is it? What government authority is responsible for the subsurface work? Oversight of subsurface development of oil and gas throughout the United Kingdom is the role of other government agencies with the broad knowledge, technical expertise and specialised experience. All subsurface work in this case, performed by Angus Energy at Brockham is fully controlled and approved by the Environmental Agency (EA), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA). 10. Will you ever use Hydraulic Fracturing known as “fracking” at Brockham or in the Weald? No. 11. Is Brockham Field on public land? No. The field itself makes up less than 1% of a 500 acre private farm. It will not get any larger. 12. Who are Angus Energy? We are a public company traded on the AIM market. We are committed to communication with all stakeholders. As such, you will find out a lot of information about the company and Brockham Field.

Looks like Brockham should be a breeze as well HH's ewt permit approval.......well done SCC.........gla holders ;-) Leith Hill Action Group Newsletter 48 18 March 2017 Stop the Leith Hill oil drilling! Hello to all our supporters. Urgent breaking news! In Newsletter 47 just a few weeks ago, we reminded you that the number one defence Europa relied upon for why they should be allowed to drill was their insistence that they could complete the whole thing within an 18 week period. We repeatedly pushed against this during the Public Inquiry, expressing scepticism that it was possible. However, Europa never faltered in their firm assertion that this was what they could and would do. The Inspector cited the 18 week period as the key mitigation that justified all the harms he acknowledged would occur as a result of the drilling. Incredibly, we have just learned that Surrey County Council has received AND APPROVED a brand new TEN MONTH application for the installation of security fencing, a security cabin and the closing of the access track and a large part of the drill site! This rushed approval gives Europa the right to start this at any date from 23 March (next Thursday)! This new fencing is permitted to last up to six months before the start of the 18 week period of the drilling project. That means that the site can be closed to the public for ten months, with a continuous presence of personnel on site. Surrey County Council officers have waved this application through as “permitted development”. We think this is a breathtakingly cynical way to avoid subjecting it to public scrutiny and avoid it having to pass through the normal planning processes. Wait a minute. Wasn’t there already an application for a fence? Correct! Europa applied last year for additional planning permission for considerable additional industrialisation to the site, including a security fence, additional visibility and an increase to the site area of 25%. This original fencing application was for the 18 week period and is being considered by Surrey County Council's Planning & Regulatory Committee on 22 March (next Wednesday). The original application for the drilling was subject to formal Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) because of its location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. At the request of Europa and Surrey County Council, the Secretary of State (for Communities and Local Government) issued a Direction that the 18-week fencing application need not be subject to EIA. LHAG has challenged that decision, because we believe it is not in accordance with the requirements of EIA Regulations. Subsequently Europa also applied for that same additional Security Fencing development but for a 52-week period. The Secretary of State decreed that the 52-week application does require EIA. Three days after that, we now learn, the “permitted development” notice that has just come to light was issued to Surrey by Europa. Surrey County Council opined that no EIA was required for the new application, but this seems contrary to everything we know about the nature of EIA requirements. We have asked the Secretary of State to reconsider his Screening Direction in relation to the 18-week fencing before the planning meeting on 22nd, and to align it with his Direction on the 52-week fencing. We will now, as a matter of urgency, ask the Secretary of State for a Screening Direction countermanding officers’ opinion in relation to this new “permitted development”.

Weald Oil needed for UK energy security. Gla ;-) UK energy sector facing crisis as natural resources diminish, North East experts say The future looks promising, but energy security will be a real challenge, according to experts who gathered on Tyneside 18:00, 15 MAR 2017 Durham University’s Prof Jon Gluyas, an expert in geo-thermal power and fossil fuels, chaired the Great Energy Debate and highlighted how the UK fortunately has ‘abundant natural energy reserves’. But he quickly shifted tack to point out how these resources are diminishing and, as a result the UK is now facing an energy crisis. He said: “We have the resources but they are in decline for a number of reasons. Coal production has declined significantly, our light oil reserves are in decline, we are at a pinch point for gas and we are not capable of storing renewables. “This makes us extremely vulnerable for the first time in generations, and, along with this, the green agenda is failing. We have lots of initiatives but we are not making much impact on emissions to the atmosphere. “For the first time the UK is facing a pinch on energy security - the future looks promising, but over the next few years energy security will be a real challenge.” Mark MacLean, senior vice president and UK head, concluded his address by predicting a rise in the oil price, and an increase in the number of offshore projects. He said: “Some say we have reached peak oil demand, but oil demand has never been as high since the 1970s. I cannot see that changing for some time and, as a result, we expect to see an increase in the oil price over the next few years.” He began his address by reflecting on the period since the 2104 oil price crash. He said the cycle had followed a familiar path; from over production, to a cut in spending and an accelerated decline in infield drilling. He said the decline in conventional oil projects has been at ‘unprecedented levels’ and said that in relation to predicted demand this is an ‘unsustainable course’. “The conventional oil projects - the baseload of the oil and gas market - take three to six years and we needed to start building now for the next cycle. “Up to now there has been no significant rebound, but 2017 is a transition point and we are seeing more new projects being sanctioned. “We had reached the lowest point since 1950, when only 10 projects were approved, but we expect to see 30 to 35 approved and this is setting up the stage for a new oil cycle.” He said that by 2030 we will be importing 80% of our gas and he believes we should doing more to harness our indigenous resources, such as shale gas. He said: “Two-thirds of the public support fracking for our own gas, rather than relying on imported gas.” This year, he said, will be a big year for the UK shale gas industry with exploration wells set to be drilled in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. He said the industry could create over 60,000 jobs with opportunities for the supply chain in sand, cement, drilling and transport, while the market for rigs could be worth £2bn. htTp://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/business/business-news/uk-energy-sector-facing-crisis-12744775

In 6 months time HH's eagerly awaited extended flow tests will be underway, by which time Alba's share price will likely be significantly higher than this bargain low.......news from SCC is expected imminently, and so more upside from where we are if a satisfactory conclusion is reached , and that paves the way for Angus to submit their field development plan for Brockham and according to Angus's Rns dated 3rd March they expect completion for production by Spring/Summer....and the following extract suggests that discussions with SCC regarding the sidetrack were already in motion and and further planning permissions with SCC were site related rather than approval for production. 3rd March RNS "In line with Angus's measured approach to field development, operations are in hand to install new production facilities for the well and to prepare for the production as soon as necessary OGA approval is in place. Targeted completion for production is in spring/summer 2017. Our professional team will shortly be meeting Surrey County Council to discuss the position in relation to the sidetrack and also to agree what further planning permissions are necessary in order to regularise the existing site cabins, fencing and associated structures. " Also the following courtesy of Long John Silver from the Angus thread is an email to Angus from SCC 12th Dec 2016 outlining permitted operations at Brockham .....and so looks like if Angus didn't drill the sidetrack to a deeper depth or to a new formation, then further permits were not required, as the original well was previously drilled to the same depth through all formations that were tested this time around. Gla holders News anytime now. ;-) htTps://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/390017/response/952500/attach/4/Letter%20Feltons%20Farm%20Dec%202016.pdf Based on the information that has been provided to the County Planning Authority contained within emails dated 2 , 6 and 9 December 2016 alongside the aerial photograph provided, the County Planning Authority can confirm that it considers the list of works described in those emails would amount to maintenance works and would not require the benefit of planning permission. Should, however, Angus Energy wish to drill any new boreholes, including new side track boreholes from the existing Brockham No.s 1, 2 or 3; to different geological formations or to a deeper depth or into any undrilled area than already drilled to , then the County Planning Authority are of the opinion that planning permission would be required for such activity and a planning application would need to be submitted.

The announcement that a decision on permit approval for HH Ewt's wouldn't happen until July was a dampener on proceedings and although the results from Brockham were as hoped, .judging by Angus's share price the market obviously wants to see confirmation if commercial flow rates, and the unexpected events with SCC have been most unhelpful , and despite near term upside expectations have been temporarily dashed, Alba's potential multi-bag potential is obvious.......in the meantime the opportunity for significant gains from this rockbottom bargain low are dependent on a satisfactory conclusion with SCC followed by OGA approval for Brockham's production and Permit Approval first HH Ewt's, both expected within the next 4 months and Alba will multi-bag on confirmation of commercial recoverable flow at HH and Brockham......and Greenland's treasure chest of graphite and gold potrntial at Amitsoq could be a game changer.
