Germany shut down on Friday half of the six nuclear plants that it still has in use, one year before it draws the curtain on its decades-long reliance on atomic power.

These three reactors, now being shut down, were originally powered up in the mid-1980s. They provided electricity for nearly four decades to millions of German homes.

In 2021, Germany generated almost 46% of its electricity from renewable energy sources. According to the Fraunhofer Institute, coal accounted for more than 51% and nuclear power for over 13%.

Cargo ships diverted gas from China to the UK; As Europe is still under major supply constraints, huge cargo ships carrying liquid fuel from China have changed their course and are heading to the UK.

Despite the fact that ships have been drawn away from other parts of the world by the Continent’s high energy prices and energy crisis, new arrivals are bringing down prices.

Last week, the UK’s gas price soared to an all-time high of 470p per unit. This was up from 50p in April. However, it has fallen to below 270p.

The well has been logged and interpreted to have encountered 17.5m of net oil pay across the Upper and Lower Bahariya reservoir targets, in line with the range of pre-drill expectations.
