Dart Energy has said that new planning rules on unconventional gas extraction show that the Scottish government recognises the role of coal bed methane in the diversification of the nation’s energy mix.
Two published documents from the Scottish government – the Scottish Planning Policy and the National Planning Framework – have been backed by the unconventional gas player. Dart Energy said the latest legislation supports the company’s proposed commercial development of land at Letham Moss near Airth.
A spokesman for Dart Energy said, “Dart Energy believes both are supportive of the proposed development and welcomes the Scottish Government’s acknowledgement of the role of coal bed methane in the diversification of the energy mix within Scotland.”
