With images appearing on Facebook yesterday of the crane and superstructure arriving at Misson Springs a visit to site was called for this morning (5th January) to see what remained. Well the rig, the mast and top drive (see image) is still awaiting transport to Misson. It seems that all is ready apart from a tractor unit to pull the thing away. In addition the blow out preventer (BOP, red vessel behind the blue grid on RHS) has been pulled away from the cellar centre line and the mud gas separator lies, dejectedly, on the pad awaiting craning onto an HGV and transport. So a lot is happening on the roads and indeed on IGas exploratory sites across North Nottinghamshire as equipment is moved from Tinker Lane and offloaded and installed at Misson Springs. We might also expect a lot more activity over the weekend in an effort to move the remaining equipment through Blyth before the school returns and restrictions on HGV movements apply next week. Surprising also how much standing water there is on the pad considering we have been rain free for the last couple of weeks.
