The oil & gas sector is facing unprecedented challenge on the right to explore and produce hydrocarbons due to climate concern from the public, and also increasingly investors and governments.

The Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) has been working closely with UKCS industry and government agencies to address the energy transition agenda and good progress has been made to date in a number of areas and cooperation is improving.

Operators are increasingly moving to reduce carbon emissions and develop green energy with their approach needing to become more coordinated with delivery of key targets and projects.

This presentation sets out the issues facing the industry, progress made to date and challenges industry to deliver at pace.
