The shale gas industry has responded to a report that local communities in the UK could lose the right to block shale gas projects by reiterating the heavily-regulated nature of the industry and noting that most people in the country want to see the UK prioritize the production of natural gas. UK national newspaper The Sunday Telegraph reported that a leaked government document reveals that government ministers are seeking to foil anti-fracking groups by classifying shale gas wells as "nationally significant infrastructure", which would remove the right of local authorities to block planning applications for wells in their regions. Environmental pressure group Friends of the Earth said that the leaked document – a letter to Chancellor George Osborne that was written by Energy Secretary Amber Rudd, Communities Secretary Greg Clark and Environment Secretary Liz Truss – demonstrated that the current UK government is prepared to "trample on local democracy". In a statement sent to Rigzone, UKOOG – the industry body that represents companies that drill onshore for oil and gas in the UK – said that the industry "is committed to consulting and working with local communities to develop the gas resources that this country needs to access to strengthen its energy security". It also pointed out that recent research conducted by ComRes revealed that 55 percent of the UK population wants to prioritize gas produced in the UK, including shale gas produced by hydraulic fracturing, over energy imported from overseas. - See more at: http://www.rigzone.com/news/oil_gas/a/142781/UK_Government_to_Turn_Up_the_Heat_in_Move_to_Boost_Shale_Gas_Industry#sthash.aYArCV8n.rBZOOO06.dpuf
I am sorry for my last response to you. And now find that upon reflection I must direct my response to you, to myself. Think I am the one that should stay away from Jury service. I think I had better give up on this for a while at least. I have lost context.
11.20 post should read 3.5% of course. Very easy to get confused. You need to read half a dozen RNS before it all starts to make sense. The odd word here and there and it's a totally different inference.
Well the GSA has been agreed and signed making the (option) to purchase the other 6.5% live. All we need now is for the GSA to be (executed). Then hopefully within thirty days of execution we will acquire. Roll on first gas.
