The future of the oil and gas industry inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Friday 13 July 2018. If you would like to send a submission, please contact Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

The Scottish Affairs Committee investigates the future of the oil and gas industry.

The Committee will consider:

  • What challenges does Scotland’s oil and gas industry face, and how can they be addressed?
  • How can the economic return from Scotland’s oil and gas reserves be maximised?
  • What action is the UK Government taking to support the long-term future of the oil and gas industry in Scotland, and how effective has this been?
  • How well do the different stakeholders (UK Government, Scottish Government, companies) work together? Does the current devolution settlement enable all stakeholders to support the sector?
  • How can Scotland maximise its expertise, technology and infrastructure in oil and gas industry to secure the industry’s future as reserves decline? What support is needed from Government to maximise these opportunities?
