7:32am 16th September 2014
Plans to drill for oil and gas at California Quarry near Swanage have been put on hold until next winter.
Infrastrata want to construct an exploratory well, but they don't think the Government will grant them a license in the time frame they need to work in.
The only have planning permission to drill at specific times.
Dr Andrew Hindle, InfraStrata CEO, said: 'Our short-term goals have been modified, but the overall timescale for the project remains much the same. We'll be spending time before winter 2015/16 further evaluating our wider survey data.'
InfraStrata is holding a drop-in public information event on Monday 27 October between 2-8pm at the Mowlem Theatre in Swanage. Key company figures will be present to answer questions.
