Frakk that Gas, Man!

Marvellous program on Quest last night about Centrica frakking gas off Norway. A fact of life is that gas not won from the North Sea is in fact inported from Norway from the British Company Centrica. Have a look at their web site. What I was not aware of was that it is frakked gas. This would suggest that the likes of FoE, WWF and the DECC are talking through their wooly hats when they object to gas exploration onshore in the UK. Our geologists have a great deal of experience. One very noticeable feature of the program was the high level of UK employment in that sphere, unlike the UK wind industry. All very highly paid and highly competent Scots engineers. Go suck on a sherbert Alex. Real jobs are here and now and in the gas industry capable of supplying the UK with cheap sustainable energy. One of the UK rigs was supplying european customers and the pipeline constructor was our very own SubSea 7. The Groonies continue to talk about Russian gas, but we don’t buy any Russian gas! The problem is that when they interrupt supplies it pushes prices up, but hey buddy, that is a fact of life whether it is gas , bananas or potatoes! Shorten supply and prices rise. Bet the Oligarches are well into the futures market at such times!
