Total to Drill Test Wells for Shale Gas in Denmark in Dec or Jan


OSLO, July 4 (Reuters) - French energy major Total plans to drill the first test wells for shale gas in Denmark no sooner than in December or January, with the drilling campaign expected to last for three months, the company said on Friday.

The Frederikshavn municipality in northern Denmark last week gave the green light for Total to drill the first test wells for shale gas in the Nordic country, where conventional gas output is dropping.
