Metgasco to close Glenugie test site

ANTI-CSG protestors have shifted their focus to Doubtful Creek, the expected site of Metgasco's next drill site, after Metgasco completed drilling at Glenugie late last week.

A Metgasco investor relations announcement issued this morning confirmed that the Glenugie exploration well, Thornbill E04, had been completed 'successfully at a depth of nearly 750 metres'.

According to the announcement, the well at Glenugie has been filled with cement and abandoned, and the surface site will be restored to its original condition.

"The AJ Lucas Rig 103 will now move to its next drilling location as soon as weather conditions in the Northern Rivers allow," the statement said.

An activists' camp has already been established at the Doubtful Creek site and was manned throughout the weekend despite the wild weather.
