Officials and I have regular discussions with industry on a range of topics, which in many cases are commercially confidential. As the Hon. Member is aware, Centrica Storage Ltd announced on 20 June 2017 that it intends to close the Rough gas storage facility following a programme of testing the injection wells and an assessment of the future commercial viability of the asset.
