Proud to be in Oil & Gas
We are proud to work in the oil and gas industry here in the UK:
- Our industry is the single largest industrial contributor to the UK economy.
- In addition to our economic contribution, and our role in protecting energy security, our industry is a world-class driver of innovation in British science, technology, and engineering, both within the oil and gas operating community, supply chain and related industries.
- Our sector also creates and sustains an impressive number of skilled, well paid and valued jobs. Unfortunately, these facts are not well known or understood.
- Our industry is helping to reinvigorate the UK economy and contribute significantly to the national skills base – but, in common with other industries we need the certainty of a consistent, stable and collaborative policy environment.
Our pilot awareness campaign, Energising the Nation’s Future, to highlight the innovation, economic contribution and skilled job creation fostered by the oil and gas industry, culminated with ‘Innovation Nation’ – a debate examining the importance of business innovation to the UK’s economic future, held in London on 15 October and hosted and sponsored by Oil & Gas UK.
