uk faces legal action over north sea oilfield exploration plans

Sumary of UK faces legal action over North Sea oilfield exploration plans:

  • In a letter to the business secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, the green group urged the minister not to rubber-stamp a permit for the Cambo oilfield, which could produce 170m barrels of oil and produce emissions equivalent to 16 coal-fired power plants running for a year.
  • The approval would risk undermining the UK government’s recent decision to bar new oil exploration licences unless the oil driller can pass a “climate checkpoint” test that proves the fossil fuel is needed and can be produced with as small a carbon footprint as possible.
  • The Cambo project will not face the same scrutiny in part because it would be an extension of an existing oilfield owned by the private equity-backed oil explorer Siccar Point.
