Natural gas in the UK

We want to play our part in diversifying Britain’s energy mix and reducing our reliance on imported gas. Energy diversity provides security and natural gas can help bring stability to our energy market.

It also has the potential to transform economies and protect jobs in manufacturing as well as creating opportunities in the industry. A recent report estimates that, nationally, shale gas could be key to creating 64,500 jobs and £33bn worth of investment in Britain in the next 18 years.

Please explore the map for information on sites where we are looking to produce natural gas.  If you can’t find the information you need please feel free to call us on our information line 0203 675 6058.
