UK energy security at risk as gas imports surge – Centrica.Andrew Critchlow – Telegraph


Gas imports will hit 70pc of supply by 2020, raising the need for new sources of supply.


More giant LNG ships to arrive in UK as gas imports expected to surg.


Britain must find new sources of energy fast as the quantity of imported natural gas is expected to increase at a much faster rate than the government had previously expected, the chief executive of Centrica has warned.


“In primary energy, the UK’s production of gas is falling rapidly,” Sam Laidlaw has told an international energy conference in Houston. “North Sea oil and gas output has fallen by 38pc over the last three years. By 2020 we will be reliant on imports to meet 70pc of the country’s gas needs. So when it comes to security of supply, there is a pressing need for solutions.”
