  • Government proposals to simplify deep underground access for shale gas and geothermal industries

    The Government is launching a consultation on proposals to simplify the existing procedure for shale gas and oil and deep geothermal underground drilling access. The new proposals would simplify procedures which are costly time-consuming and disproportionate for new methods of underground drilling. Oil, gas and deep geothermal companies will be able to explore their potential, and will in return ...

  • Government to remove barriers to onshore oil and gas and deep geothermal exploration

    Now more than ever, the UK needs secure domestic energy supplies. Since 2003, as North Sea Oil has declined, we have become a net importer of oil and gas and are now increasingly dependent on international energy resources. It is essential that we make the most of home-sourced energy and start exploring the natural energy supplies beneath our feet. Our vision for Britain is ...
