IEA Energy Analyst Andy Mayer has written for CapX welcoming the decision to grant 27 new North Sea oil drilling licences.

Andy wrote:

“The enthusiasm with which companies like Shell have snapped up the new licenses is surely a riposte to worries that the 75% windfall tax on energy companies would undermine investment. The diversification of supply will reduce our dependency on imports, improve our energy security, and create revenue for the Treasury, which in turn can be used for purposes like investment in a lower carbon future. Win-win-win.”
