Shell to exploit ANOTHER Scottish field
Shell has announced it is to develop yet another field off Aberdeen.
This is good for Shell no doubt and they and the other companies are to
be commended for their development of many new techniques to extract gas and oil in the treacherous waters off Scotland,BUT:
LONDON- will be the beneficiary as usual.
Will the Scottish parliament make it crystal clear to London it wants to
regulate and reach accommodations with ALL oil companies without
interference from London?
I can never see Westminster allowing that, so how to proceed a Scottish
referendum setup by Edinburgh?
