OEUK published its comprehensive plan that protects UK energy security without compromising on climate goals
We’ve set our industry’s plan to deliver secure and clean energy for today and in the future.
‘Reliable and Responsible Partners: A Plan for Clean and Secure Energy’, recognises the vital role that the offshore energy industry continues to play in delivering the UK’s power and fuel supplies, underpinning the industry’s commitment to deliver a cleaner and more secure energy system.
The plan outlines a series of tangible steps and recommendations for the UK Government covering the near, medium and long-term. Importantly, the industry’s net zero commitments remain at the heart of the plan, supporting the development of a cleaner energy system for the UK.
OEUK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie OBE said:
“We look to events taking place in Ukraine with horror. Many energy producer companies have withdrawn from Russia, and we recognise the UK government’s commitment to phase out Russian oil imports by the end of this year.
For over 50 years, the UK offshore energy industry has helped meet the UK’s power and fuel needs with domestically produced oil and gas, and the industry is committed to being a reliable and responsible energy partner. The changing context does not change the facts, and we continue to accelerate both the decarbonisation of our sector and the solutions required to decarbonise the UK economy.
“Today we outline our plan underpinning the delivery of secure clean energy for the UK today, tomorrow and in future.”
