Energy Voice – Out Loud

EVOL: Juicing the Orange Basin, Scotland’s port potential and letters to the First Minister

Listen on

Episode notes

Fresh from the bright lights of Pareto’s annual E&P conference in London, Ed reports on Africa Oil’s big hopes for the year – not least of which include exploration opportunities in Orange Basin acreage off Namibia and South Africa.

Meanwhile Andrew has been coast to coast looking at the UK’s offshore wind hopes, with port infrastructure remaining one of the key challenges, particularly in the wake of news that another set of floating turbines will be towed abroad for maintenance.

And Allister pores over a letter sent by Ithaca Energy to First Minister Humza Yousaf voicing discontent over his “extremely disappointing” opposition to Rosebank. Is this just the tip of the politicking iceberg in a general election year?
