UK offshore oil and gas industry to reveal progress on carbon reduction

7 October 2021

The leading representative body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry is set to reveal how the sector is performing against its emission reduction targets in the launch of a flagship sustainability report this month.

OGUK’s annual Energy Transition Outlook report takes a detailed look at efforts made by the sector to reduce emissions and use its skills to help the country transform to low carbon.

The findings will be published on Thursday 21 October alongside a virtual event for industry and stakeholders. 

The event will see some of the companies which are driving the change take part in a panel discussion with OGUK’s report authors.

The report will also highlight some of the further practical changes that are required to deliver a carbon neutral economy in the UK by 2050 and 2045 in Scotland.

OGUK Energy Policy Manager Will Webster said:

“Our Energy Transition Outlook will track progress against our emissions reduction targets and provide a detailed insight into the practical steps being taken by companies.

“Many are already investing in renewables, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen while actively working to make their continued production more sustainable.

“It is also an opportunity for industry to now reflect on the enormous changes in the energy economy over the last 18 months and to consider what more can be done.”

Full details of the event and a registration link can be found here. Chaired by Mike Tholen, Sustainability Director, OGUK. Speakers and panellists include:
