Abstract

Since oil was first discovered in the North Sea in 1969, over 45.9 billion boe of oil and gas has come from the UK continental shelf.1 Aberdeen and its surrounding areas became the hub for the oil and gas industry when it first arrived at the UK shores. From the ‘oil capital’ of Europe, Aberdeen has now become an ‘energy capital’ – hub not only for oil and gas but also for offshore technologies in renewables and decommissioning. The production of oil and gas from the UK continental shelf peaked in 1999 and has been in decline since. In addition,
commitments to net zero and the UK’s legal obligations to mitigate climate change are reshaping the energy industry.
