UKCS Great Place To Do Business
On the look ahead, the body stated that the UK continental shelf (UKCS) is still a great place to do business and invest, as it looks to keep international investment flowing in to the industry.
“The UK oil and gas industry is at a critical juncture and we need to ensure the UK Continental Shelf continues to attract investment and be seen as a great place to do business.
“We will be consulting closely with our members in the coming weeks and look forward to engaging with all governments to play our part in this process.” concluded the statement.
