"No other country in the world has ever experienced even a fraction of the overall United States' drilling intensity, a common feature of the US oil and gas industry since its inception," Mr Maugeri continued. "In 2012, for example, the United States completed 45,468 oil and gas wells and brought online 28,354 of them as against 3,921 wells completed in the rest of the world, except Canada."
a) We have the horizontal rigs on-hand, others don't. b) the population density of England is extraordinarily high in comparison to the US-- about 53 million people crammed into the area of New York state. Talk about NIMBY.

I think you are correct.
This density of oil/gas wells would just not go over well in the UK
The link is to an area about 10 by 10 miles near Carlsbad, NM. Many other spots in that area are just as dense.
The UK just does not have that much open space they are willing to use...:^)
