Scottish oil production

Recently the TV showed a programme about Texas where they have been extracting oil for 100 years. They thought the oil production was coming to an end but new technology has been introduced to reach oil which had been left because it was too deep and inaccessible. Now they expect another 100 years of oil production. Earlier this year the oil companies in Scotland spent billions of pounds introducing this new technology in the North Sea because they also had to leave oil which was too deep. Now they expect to produce twice as much oil as they had previously anticipated. Can you wonder that England is desperate for us to vote no in the referendum.
