Government approves gloucestershire installation to allow for more gas imports

The Government today gave the go-ahead for a new gas installation at Tirley
in Gloucestershire, which will help boost UK energy security by allowing for
more gas imports.

Energy Minister Charles Hendry said:

"This Government is committed to ensuring we maintain secure energy
supplies. A vital part of this is having a diverse energy mix: renewables,
nuclear, coal with Carbon Capture and Storage and gas all have an important
part to play.

National Grid's new Gas Pressure Reduction Installation will be a vital part
of a 316 kilometre pipeline transporting gas from the Milford Haven
liquefied natural gas terminals into the National Gas Transmission network
at Tirley."
