Union Jack Oil confirmed that an appeal had been lodged against a council decision in Lincolnshire to refuse planning consent for the development of the Wressle oil discovery.
Union Jack said the operator of the project had filed the appeal on 1 February.
'We strongly believe, as does the operator, the enhanced proposals for the development of Wressle address, comprehensively, the reasons highlighted by the planning inspector in his dismissal of the initial appeals in January 2018,' executive chairman David Bramhill said.
'This position was supported by the recommendation for approval given by the council's planning officer, also reinforced by an expert third party review undertaken on behalf of the council.'
