The Government recognises the importance of the UK oil and gas industry to our economy and energy needs. Parliamentary business did not allow DECC Minsters to attend Offshore Europe but, as it is a key priority, the Oil and Gas Authority and DECC Officials played a leading role and we continue to maintain a dialogue with operators and other industry stakeholders. The Energy Minister’s first official visit was to Aberdeen to see first-hand what the industry is achieving even in these difficult times. She continues to visit and meet with many in the sector.
