We're committed to supporting Scotland's oil and gas industry to help build a more international, more innovative and more resilient sector.

Supporting Scotland's supply chain

These are challenging times for the oil and gas industry. Across the world the sector is having to adapt to reduced prices.

We understand that. Through the Energy Jobs Taskforce we aim to help the sector make the transformational change needed to ensure the long term success of the sector in Scotland.
