Rough Storage Facility closure

After it being temporarily closed for some time over safety fears, Centrica have decided to permanently close the Rough facility off the Yorkshire coast. This is the UK’s largest gas storage plant and now asks the question, will we now be facing more volatile future gas prices? Centrica have said that not only was the facility unsafe it had also become uneconomic to reopen the facility. This closure will happen over a period of 4-5 years as all the remaining gas reserves have been sold.
