As a national asset, the oil and gas sector contributes significantly to the UK economy through generating revenue, employing thousands of skilled people, delivering a secure supply of energy and as an essential feedstock for other sectors. It merits a place at the heart of the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy and industry is driving forward a case for specific actions from government. This session explored how the Industrial Strategy provides an opportunity to deliver Vision 2035; what is required to build the business case for a sector-specific deal; why creating a versatile workforce is crucial; and how the industry plays a part in transitioning to a lower-carbon future through carbon capture and storage.
