Oil & Gas UK is the leading trade association for the United Kingdom offshore oil and gas industry.

History[edit]

Oil & Gas UK is a not-for-profit organisation, established in April 2007 on the foundations of the UK Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA).[1] The association is the leading representative body for the UK offshore oil and gas industry that stretches back over 30 years. Its membership is open to all companies active in the area; these include businesses such as super majors to large contractor businesses and from independent oil companies to SMEs working in the supply chain.

Function[edit]

Oil & Gas UK is a trade association for the whole sector. It is a source of information for the UK Upstream and a gateway to industry networks and expertise.

  • developing and delivering industry-wide initiatives and programmes engaging with governments and other external organisations with a stake in the industry’s future

Location[edit]

The association is situated in Portland House on the corner of Bressenden Place and Victoria Street in the City of Westminster. It also has an office on Market Street in Aberdeen near the train station, in the town where the UKOOA was based.
