    Oil & Gas UK welcomes PM’s support

    News // November 16, 2012

    Malcolm Webb, Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, has welcomed the Prime Minister’s support for the UK oil and gas industry, saying: “Mr Cameron’s confirmation that an industrial strategy for our high growth oil and gas sector will be published early next year is very encouraging.

    "Supporting over 40 years of domestic oil and gas production, a valuable, high technology supply chain has grown up across Britain.

    "Strong global oil and gas activity means it is very well-placed to grow its exports – currently worth around £6 billion a year – from this base, providing a boost for jobs, innovation and the economy.”
