Development of a major North Sea gas field has been approved by regulators, reports BBC News.

The Jackdaw field, east of Aberdeen, has the potential to produce 6.5% of Britain’s gas output.

The regulatory approval comes as the UK government seeks to boost domestic energy output following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Let’s source more of the gas we need from British waters to protect energy security.”
