Man drilling for oil

Overall investment in the North Sea is increasing, and DECC continues to approve new drilling programmes and significant field development plans that will see life continue on the UK Continental Shelf for at least the next 40 years.

Oil and gas today supplies three quarters of the UK’s primary energy demand and will continue to be of substantial importance for many years to come. With some 20 billion barrels of oil equivalent to recover – or perhaps more – there are still many opportunities for exploration and investment.

Our  industry is central to global energy security and UK national economic growth. It is at the cutting edge of technology, with world-class engineering and manufacturing, and it will continue as a key part of the energy mix as we transition to a low-carbon economy.

In this section you can access the data and information to help you monitor progress on the UKCS and keep abreast of the latest business opportunities.
