31 August 2023

The leading representative body for the UK offshore energy sector, Offshore Energies UK, has welcomed new ministerial appointments after today’s cabinet reshuffle.

OEUK CEO Dave Whitehouse said:

“We welcome the appointment of Claire Coutinho MP as the new Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, a crucial role in a vital department particularly at this time where security of supply and delivering meaningful action on the transition are at the forefront of energy policy.

“We look forward to working with the new Secretary of State and her team to build on the progress the sector has already made to deliver energy security from the North Sea, underpinned by the North Sea Transition Deal.

“We also wish The Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP well in his new role as the Secretary of State for Defence – building on his work on energy resilience and security.”
