UK-listed Reabold Resources has reported more drilling success at its West Newton drilling operations in east Yorkshire, bolstering further expectations of the largest UK onshore discovery since Wytch Farm in the 1970s.

Reabold reported on Thursday its latest drilling increased the total overall hydrocarbon column in the accumulation to at least 118 metres.

It follows the completion last month of the West Newton B-1Z sidetrack, which has now been combined with results of the earlier B1 well.
