John Browne, former chief executive at BP, becomes the face of fracking in Britain

“Shale gas could be very, very important for this country; it could be transformative,” says Browne, 66, who’s now chairman of Cuadrilla Resources, a British exploration firm that plans to frack the English countryside. “It’s like the opening of Alaska or western Siberia or the Gulf of Mexico.” Even as evidence mounts that fracking operations drain aquifers and spew methane into the air, energy firms are fanning out across mammoth shale deposits in China, Russia, India, South Africa, Australia and Argentina. Royal Dutch Shell has joined forces with China Petroleum & Chemical, or Sinopec, in China to exploit the world’s largest shale-gas-laden formations. Even relatively small Britain is sitting on a gas mother lode. The Bowland-Hodder formation, a belt of shale that stretches across Britain’s midsection, holds more than 1,300 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to the British Geological Survey. That’s almost the same size as the Marcellus deposit under the Appalachian Mountains, the No. 1 U.S. shale gas find. read more

THE BUSINESS: The new king of the oil patch

Lord Browne has put BP back on the map at the forefront of the global energy industry

By Nelson Schwartz

FROM FORTUNE Magazine

25/26 July 2004

IN an industry peopled with Texans who drop their “Gs” and seem fresh from the set of Rawhide, BP’s John Browne is decidedly different. Lord Browne is as content discussing his collection of crystal goblets or contemporary art as he is BP’s latest offshore find or next big pipeline project. He prefers salmon to steak and still speaks the Queen’s English he learned at boarding school and Cambridge. read more
