Commenting on the launch today of the UKCS Workforce Dynamics Review by global energy skills body OPITO, in partnership with Robert Gordon University’s (RGU) Oil and Gas Institute, Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie said: 

“This insightful report shows while overall direct employment is likely to fall, we will need over 40,000 new people in the industry to deliver Vision 2035 and to continue to diversify in response to the energy transition. Vision 2035 will enable us to extend the productive life of the basin, double our share in global supply chain markets and support our UK-wide workforce.”
