Gordon University has stated that North Sea Oil could have a long bright
future, while also expressing support for fracking in the meantime.
Professor Oyeneyin is due to give a lecture in Aberdeen this week on the
subject and commented that while clean energy is a welcome addition to
the global energy mix, the oil and gas supply should be maintained in
order to resolve the energy gap. "We
have explored less than 20 per cent of the world's hydrocarbon
deposits, and the recovery factor is only 40 per cent" said Oyeneyin,
clearly supportive of attempts to exploit as many of the world's
remaining oil reserves as possible. "There is still around 60 per cent
