OGA interim findings highlight the potential of an integrated offshore energy sector

The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) has published its interim report, which explores how partnering between oil and gas, renewables, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) can accelerate the transition to net zero.

Issued on 17 December, UKCS Energy Integration: Interim Findings discusses the first phase of the UKCS Energy Integration project (led by the OGA), working with BEIS, The Crown Estate and Ofgem.

The project also considers how oil and gas infrastructure and capabilities can be leveraged for CCS and to support renewable energy production and hydrogen generation, transportation and storage.

The report finds that innovative partnering between oil and gas, renewables, hydrogen and carbon capture can accelerate energy transition, helping to lower the oil and gas industry’s carbon footprint and decarbonising the UK economy.
