    Denmark to join shale gas quest in Europe

    The city council of Frederikshavn, Denmark, has issued Total a permit to drill the first test wells for shale gas, Reuters has reported.

    Last year, Denmark consumed more energy than it produced for the first time since 1997. Though the country remains a net oil and gas exporter, output for the two fell by 13% and 18% respectively over 2013, Danish energy agency data show.

    The Reuters report said that a consortium consisting of Total (80%) and state-owned North Sea Fund (Nordsoefonden) is planning to launch an exploration well late this summer.
