Commenting on the findings of the Scottish Affairs Committee inquiry into the future of oil and gas, OGUK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie said:

“This was a considered inquiry into the future of the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry and we welcome the rounded support provided by the Scottish Affairs Committee in its final report today. It confirms the value our sector provides for energy security, jobs and contributing to the economy, both now and as we prepare to meet the challenges of the future.

“Industry has been unequivocal in its support to this inquiry and we will continue to work with governments, politicians and our members in forming our detailed response to the report’s conclusions.

“What is clear is that there is a recognition of our value and a collective will to realise the full potential of our industry. This is a solid founding block on which to realise Vision 2035, adding a generation of productive life to the UK Continental Shelf and expanding opportunities for our world class supply chain.”
