Oil and gas guide to promote north supply chain

Leading trade body Energy North has published a directory of north oil and gas supply chain businesses, providing a one-stop-shop for developers keen to capitalise on the region’s energy workforce.

Supported by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the publication contains details of over 80 business from the Orkney, Shetland, Caithness and Sutherland, the Outer Hebrides, Ross-shire, Wester Ross, Inverness-shire, Moray and Argyll.

Supply chain directoryThe publication has been developed as part of the Energy North Oil and Gas Taskforce, the compact directory highlights the breadth of expertise on offer to the oil and gas industry, with services ranging from accommodation to welding. It will be used to promote the region’s supply-chain to energy developers across the UK and beyond.

Ian Couper, chief executive at Energy North, commented:

“The north energy industry benefits from an excellent supply-chain with a wealth of capabilities and experience built up over the past decades. However, for developers and top tier contractors coming into the region, it can be hard to identify the right suppliers for the job.”

Bill Cattanach, head of industry and technology development at DECC, added:

“With record levels of investment in the UKCS (UK continental shelf) it is timely and opportune to promote the outstanding capability and skills which exists within the Highland area.

“The directory provides an easy to use guide to oil and gas specific services and infrastructure on offer in each area of the north. This will create more visibility and lead to greater opportunities for Highland and Islands business.”
