BP has launched an exploratory drilling in the British North Sea shelf. The drilling will take place in area 43/26 approximately 50 kilometers north-east of Hull by the existing Ravenspurn gas field, where the Brits hope to have found more gas.

Or as soon as the gas, which is sure to be there, can be extracted profitably. The drilling is several hundred meters under the mature fields, which have delivered gas to the Ravenspurn platform since the beginning of the 1990s.
