The shape of the industry

The oil and gas industry has dealt with many highs and lows over the years, most recently with Covid, Brexit and environmental concerns. But it’s a sector that employs over 280,000 workers in the UK, and directly accounts for around 1.2 per cent of the UK GDP - and is set to contribute billions of pounds in taxes in the future.

Taking into account recent events, the industry has been destabilised with a reduction in demand and many refineries are struggling financially. With the demand for petroleum waning, oil and gas companies are facing an uncertain future.

The most important buzz word for the oil and gas industry is "carbon emissions". McKinsey states that the oil and gas sector must "reduce its emissions by at least 3.4 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent (GtCO2e) a year by 2050." It’s crucial oil and gas companies act now and play their role in mitigating climate change.
