Commenting on the publication of the Oil and Gas Authority’s ‘Thematic Review into Industry Compliance with Regulatory Obligations’, which stresses the key role of licence management in maximising economic recovery,

OGUK Operations Director Katy Heidenreich said:

“Thematic reviews are an established method of performance improvement which has been used across a number of sectors and we welcome this constructive reflection from the OGA today.

“It not only highlights areas where the UK offshore oil and gas industry and the regulator can make improvements, but also where the sector can build upon good practise. While the report looks at compliance in 2018, it is encouraging to see the OGA recognise the steps taken by industry since then that point to improvement in performance.

“However, there is always more that can be done and the recommendations provide practical and considered suggestions for both industry and the OGA to continue to improve and we look forward to building on this constructive approach.”
