UK oil and gas trade body expands remit to low-carbon energy
The trade body for the UK offshore oil and gas industry – OGUK – is expanding to include low-carbon offshore energy technologies, such as offshore wind, hydrogen production and carbon capture and storage systems.
The move will also see the organisation change its name to Offshore Energies UK from 14 February 2022.
This move reflects the diverse mix of energy-generating systems needed to achieve net-zero.
CEO, Deirdre Michie says, 'Extending our representation to include renewable and carbon-cutting industries will better reflect the agile nature of the companies involved in energy production.'
