OGUK has welcomed the final report released by Climate Assembly UK (Thursday, September 10), which states that the country’s path to net zero must be underpinned by education, choice, fairness and political consensus.

OGUK is already discussing a transformational North Sea Transition Deal with the UK Government, which will also set out how the country’s oil and gas industry will play its part in supporting a green recovery that attracts investment, jobs and boosts the supply chain.

Commenting, OGUK’s chief executive Deirdre Michie said:

'The Climate Assembly UK report is welcome and picks up on a number of areas that we as an industry are already driving forward in support of the country’s climate ambitions.

'We already know the powerful combination of this sector’s skills, capabilities and infrastructure are advancing new technologies on the road to net zero, with some key projects already underway. At the same time, our changing industry can help to keep costs low for households, support highly skilled jobs while also developing cleaner energy for the future.

'Industry’s Roadmap 2035 offers a sensible blueprint with a progressive net zero agenda, supporting energy communities to embrace new opportunities – including hydrogen. Despite the pressures experienced by the sector, a number of identified actions have already been delivered, including our commitment to halve emissions from the operational production of oil and gas over the next decade.

'Through the energy transition, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to show how we, as an oil and gas producing country, can successfully build a more diverse and lower carbon energy mix in a way that embraces the skills and talents of our people, provides secure and affordable energy to all, and unlocks thriving energy communities both now and in future.'
