Europa Oil & Gas (Holdings) plc (‘Europa’ or ‘the Company’)

Europa’s conventional UK oil production unaffected by shale gas fracking moratorium

Europa Oil & Gas (Holdings) plc, the oil and gas exploration, development and production company with assets in UK, Morocco and Ireland, wishes to emphasise the Company has no involvement in hydraulic fracturing operations for shale gas in England.  As a result, the shale gas moratorium announced in the UK Government’s statement of 2 November 2019 will have no impact on Europa’s conventional oil production and development activities in England.  

A link to the press release issued by the UK Government, in which it announced the end of its support for hydraulic fracturing for shale gas in England on the basis of new scientific evidence, can be found here https://bit.ly/2qg2pgG.
