OGUK changes its name to Offshore Energies UK

The leading representative body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry – OGUK, is expanding to include the exciting low-carbon offshore energy technologies that its members are developing. These will include offshore wind, hydrogen production, carbon capture and storage systems, and other emerging low-carbon technologies.

  • The move will also see OGUK changing its name to Offshore Energies UK. ​
  • It follows a year-long strategic review and takes effect from February 14, 2022.​
  • Offshore Energies UK will continue to champion the oil and gas sector but will also support those with an interest in carbon capture and storage, hydrogen production and​ offshore wind.​
  • This move reflects the evolving nature of the industry in creating the diverse mix of energy generating systems needed to achieve net zero.​

Deirdre Michie, CEO of Offshore Energies UK, said the organisation would be a unifying voice for an offshore energy sector that was undergoing rapid and positive change. Existing members approved the new strategic direction at their AGM in December 2021.​

Offshore Energies UK will continue to work with regulators, policy-makers and stakeholders to champion the offshore energy industries and help achieve a managed transition towards the UK’s climate goals. Some key elements of this work are already under way for carbon capture and hydrogen production, through the landmark North Sea Transition Deal that OGUK signed with the UK Government last March – the first deal of its kind by a G7 country.​
