The Socialist People's Party (SF) and the Danish Social Liberal Party (R) want to withdraw support for the awarding of new licenses to oil companies in the North Sea until 2055 due to climate considerations.
"I would be proud to help put an end to the Danish oil adventure. Not because I don't know that we've benefited greatly from the revenue it has produced, but rather because we're headed for a fossil-free future. And it's our responsibility to make the decisions that can get us there as quickly as possible. One of the ways to do this is by no longer issuing new licenses to drill in the North Sea," says Morten Østergaard, leader of the Danish Social Liberal Party, in a statement, according to news media DR Nyheder.
