The leading representative body for the UK offshore oil and gas industry has responded to the Scottish Government’s updated Climate Change Plan, which recognizes the value the oil and gas industry can make in stepping up the transition to net-zero.

Commenting on the updated Climate Change Plan, OGUK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie OBE said:
“The Scottish Governments’ Climate Change Plan recognises the critical role of the country’s changing oil and gas industry in accelerating moves towards a low carbon future.

“Through bringing to life hydrogen and carbon capture, and through harnessing the expertise and skills of our talented people, we can continue to provide lower carbon and affordable energy to millions of people while helping unlock the energy system of the future.

“We keenly await the Scottish Government’s revised Energy Strategy in 2021. However, given the significance of our industry to Scottish jobs and the economy, as well as the triple threat of COVID-19 we’ve faced this year, we must continue to work at pace with the Scottish government to ensure that our supply chain is supported throughout the Just Transition.

“We’re committed to delivering our net-zero goals through reducing our own emissions, as detailed in Roadmap 2035, while many companies are already actively supporting the new CCUS and hydrogen projects recognised by the Committee on Climate Change as essential. We will continue to work with both governments to secure a vital North Sea Transition deal in the first half of 2021, safeguarding jobs and supporting our energy communities in the journey to net-zero.”
