MPs urge future deal to support Scotland’s oil and gas industry

The Parliamentary Scottish Affairs Committee has urged the UK government to agree an “ambitious sector deal” to ensure that Scotland’s oil and gas industry can “navigate the challenges of its future and continue to prosper”.

On 4 February, the committee recommended that the government should work with the sector to develop a decommissioning export strategy for the sector deal and ensure the deal contains specific and measurable outcomes on increasing skills transfer to new sectors.

Additionally, MPs recommended that the industry should focus on maximising economic recovery “to provide a domestic source of oil and gas that the UK is expected to need for decades to come”.
