Not good Levi, the Forties pipeline in Scotland has had to be shutdown too due to a crack being found so impacts for both Italy and the UK. Thoughts with the family of the deceased and the injured workers.

The Italians did indeed declare a state of emergency, about lunchtime on the day of the unfortunate Austrian explosion.
By 7 pm of that same day they had lifted the state of emergency, having established that there was sufficient stored gas to keep the country running.
I'm sure I am not alone in thinking that the 'unusual' level of coverage of this mini-event in the UK Press is designed to soften up the UK gas consumers to shrug off the higher prices which the multi-national privatised gas retailers will inevitably impose.

Don't think the government is competent enough to think up such a plan Relaxed. Disgusting how the UK is now not self sufficient in gas, our N Sea gas should have lasted hundreds of years and been for domestic use only. Disgraceful that it has been used to produce electricity and in industry. I don't think the family of the deceased and injured would call it a mini-event, O&G workers viewed with contempt as usual.
