‘Let’s produce, not import’
THIRD ENERGY insisted last night that developing gas from unconventional formations, such as shale, could be viewed ‘very positively’ by Yorkshire residents in terms of inward investment, growth of the local supply chain and jobs.
Director Alan Linn said: “Nationally, it will provide a new source of domestically produced natural gas and displace imported gas. Large parts of Yorkshire sit on top of the Bowland Shale Formation, potentially one of the best sources of gas-bearing shale in Europe. Let’s not import this vital form of energy when we can produce it in the UK.
“By using our own homegrown sources of gas, we can produce benefits for the environment and our security of supply, and provide local communities with inward investment they need.”
