(WVUE) - The company behind the controversial fracking project on the North Shore takes steps to move forward.

Helis Oil and Gas reports that it has filed for three required applications for drilling off State Highway 1088 just north of I-12.

According to the company, they require two revised applications for a wetlands permit and water quality permit.

Helis says the revised forms include answers to questions posed by the Army Corps of Engineers and the State Environmental Equality Department that arose after the filing of the applications.
