The article reports on the implication of continuing leak at Total's Elgin gas field for greenhouse gas emissions in Great Britain. The estimated rate of gas release from the Elgin field ranges from 4,300 to 130,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per day. A Total spokesman claims that relief well drilling could take up to six months. It cites one million British pounds as the estimated loss of Total in daily production as a result of the leak.
