An Environment Agency spokesperson said:

In deciding whether or not to issue the permit, the Environment Agency will take into account all relevant considerations and legal requirements.

An environmental permit sets out stringent conditions that all oil and gas sites must adhere to. We will not issue an environmental permit for a site if we consider that activities taking place will cause significant pollution to the environment or harm to human health.
