London Local Energy wants to reboot the shale gas debate by stressing the product, not the process. We start by correcting two key errors: Gas development is not surface intensive, and nor is local natural gas best left in the ground to fight carbon emissions and climate change.
We also have an entirely different narrative. We don’t seek to industrialise the countryside. We want to industrialise industrial estates.
LLE’s geologists believe there could be a yet undiscovered oil and gas province under London. Aligning natural gas production with local demand is inherently sustainable and would make London natural gas the lowest carbon natural gas on earth.
Based on modest projections of meeting 12% of London natural gas demand (1.1 billion cubic metres), we estimate CO2 savings, compared to the current UK natural gas supply mix, of 1 million tonnes of CO2. Savings would be ≈1.7 million tonnes if compared to imports of LNG from Qatar, the USA or via pipeline from Russia. Continue reading “London Local Energy: We Want What You Want.
