Press reports indicate that Britain has 13 days of gas supplies left

Press reports indicate that Britain has 13 days of gas supplies left

After troubles involving a Belgian pipeline, Britain is facing the real prospect of not having enough gas supplies. Press reports indicate that we now have merely 13 days of gas supplies left as reserves dwindle due to weather conditions.

The need to secure reliable sources of energy is now more urgent that ever before as North Sea Oil reserves are also coming to an end. Britain has been forced to rely on various foreign gas providers and having to depend more and more on external providers, some of them located as far away as Qatar in areas that are politically unstable. Energy sources are an issue of national security.

Just a few days ago, the British government signed a deal with the French company EDF for the construction of nuclear reactor in Somerset. Whatever the concerns about nuclear energy, we need energy in huge amounts sooner than later.
