A decision on the proposed development of the Wressle onshore oilfield in the UK is expected by the end of the year, London-listed junior Egdon Resources said.

The Wressle oilfield is located at Lodge Farm on the PEDL 180 license. Egdon and its partners have been working to get all the necessary permits in place since early last year, however, have been met with repeated rejections.

The planning inquiry to hear the company's appeal against the refusal of planning consent for the development of Wressle by North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee started on 5 November.
