E.ON, RWE and Centrica join the Arctic oil and gas rush.

Guardian: “Half of the big six energy companies operating in the UK are leading a new dash into the Arctic in search of new oil and gas after gaining exploration licences in Norwegian waters. The push comes despite three of Norway’s environment agencies warning that total or partial drilling bans are needed in most of the blocks.” “….E.ON, which cited technical delays in pulling out of a wave power project in Orkney on Wednesday, scrapped joint plans with RWE in 2012 to build new nuclear power stations in the UK.”
