Some people may quake in their shoes when receiving a letter from their gas company, but not the Chairman of Easington Parish Council.

Postman Pat’s attack of gas

It may be more expensive than the cost of a stamp and perhaps a lot slower than an email, but it’s certainly more personal and inventive. According to petro.no Aukra council’s mayor, Bernhard Riksfjord, sent a letter to Stuart Haywood through the Langeled pipline. The pipeline is currently being pigged and inspected.

“As far as I know, this is the first time that anybody has used this type of pipe mail,” Riksfjord tells the site.

According to the mayor, Britain receives 20 percent of its gas supply from the Ormen Lange facility via the processing plant in Nyhamna, located in his council district.

Visit

The letter was sent on 19 August, according to the Norwegian News Agency (NTB) containing, amongst other things, an invitation to local Easington politicians and bureaucrats to come and view the facility.

Riksfjord hopes he gets an answer.

“It will probably arrive in the usual way, but I wouldn’t have minded going out to Nyhamna to collect the answer myself with Shell and Gassco’s help,” he said.

What a gas.
