Scottish government aims to boost oil and gas sector


 

The Scottish government has announced a series of actions it will take to support the oil and gas sector, following a special session of the Scottish Cabinet on Tuesday 26 January. First minister Nicola Sturgeon said ministers would enter discussions with the industry, the Oil and Gas Authority, enterprise agencies and local partners to deliver urgent action in the areas of skills, exploration, innovation and finance. The first minister said: “[…] oil and gas can continue to make a significant contribution to the Scottish economy and energy security for decades to come. However, this will only be achieved if we support the industry through this difficult time […].”
