UK is looking to invest in oil sands, tight oil development
Business Insider UK article The UK is set to be the world’s first country to invest heavily in oil and gas development, according to a report by The Financial Times.
The report states that the UK’s Oil and Gas Authority is expected to announce the investment on Thursday.
According to The Financial Lady, the UK has already invested heavily in developing the oil sands in the United States, and is planning to invest more.
In fact, The Financial Lord states that “the UK will become the first country in the world to invest directly into the exploration and development of the oil and natural gas reserves in the oil-rich sands of the Canadian oil sands.”
This will mean a direct and direct investment in developing proven oil and reserves, as opposed to the “futuristic” development of future reserves.
According to The FT, the British government is hoping to “increase the UK economy’s competitiveness in the global market for oil and mineral resources, by investing billions in the development of oil and minerals, with a view to developing and exporting to other countries.”
The UK government is looking for “an immediate boost in domestic economic growth by securing the long-term supply of oil, gas and minerals.”
It’s also said that the new investment will not only create jobs, but also boost the UK in the long run.
This is especially true given that it is a large part of the UK government’s revenue.
The government is also looking to boost the economic prospects of the developing oil sands region, as well as the local economy, by developing new industries, such as the tourism industry.
According the Financial Times, the government is “looking at investing millions in a new oil sands refinery, a new mine, and a new railway line.”
The government hopes to create an economy that is both resilient and flexible.
The Oil and Mineral Fund is said to be working with the UK Chamber of Commerce, the National Coal Board, and the Department for International Development, as part of its investment plan.
According an announcement from the Treasury, the Fund’s new investment would be used to “help boost jobs and investment in the energy and mining sectors.”
