Is the UK entering its last decade of oil and gas production

Unread postby AdamB » Sat 16 Dec 2017, 12:45:05


Controversial research by the University of Edinburgh suggests UK oil and gas industries are entering the last decade of production. Julian Turner talks to the author of the report, Prof. Roy Thompson, about resource depletion, hard data vs industry optimism, and the transition to the clean economy. The Edinburgh Geological Society was formed in 1834 with the aim of stimulating public interest in geology. Issue 62 of its magazine, The Edinburgh Geologist, published in October, certainly did that. It contained a report by Edinburgh University that predicted the UK’s oil and gas reserves could run out in as little as a decade, that fracking is not viable in Scotland and barely feasible in the UK thanks to a dearth of suitable geology, and that the UK will soon have to import all its oil and gas. Professor Roy Thompson of Edinburgh University’s School

This in spite of rockdoc's obsessive insistence that UK will fract it's shale. That won't happen. I kept telling him you can't ran shale-oil trains through the Chunnel. The French would never stand for it, because they run their perfume that way. Nor will the UK import oil. There is no excess, even Norway is running down.

You wouldn't even know about the shale if the US hadn't rearranged the global business model around pricing it..using source rock production.

And this title is a crock, because it does ignore the Bowland. The UK can probably do the same thing the US did, so, like I said, the conclusion in the title is a crock. The UK might being entering its last decade.....IF THAT IS WHAT IT DECIDES TO DO....because it can certainly choose to do something else.

New threads are intended to spark discussion. I agree with the OP, just chose to put some historical perspective on it. Just because you don't like the tenor of my contribution is no reason to make a fool of yourself.

The North Sea is seriously depleated at this point because of the pumpas fast as you can. If they had limited exploitation to internal consumption rate, as any industrialized power could have in the 1990’s they would just now be starting to i port again and would have decades of cushion to live on.
