Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Shell drilled for the shale resources in southern Sweden as indicated by the map, but gave up as the geology supposedly wasn't good enough. Also, there was strong local opposition. Probably has something to do with the Swedish mineral regulation which awards essentially all the profits to the extractive company without companesation to the landowner, and also make straight out land expropriation possible.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
