#OG2050: OGA doesn’t hold all the answers to industry challenges

A managing partner at EY in Aberdeen said in order to “radically" improve the cost base in the UKCS there would need to be a behaviour change within the oil and gas industry. Speaking after the event, Derek Leith said he had been surprised by findings from Energy Voice’s research which showed a ‘negative’ view of the industry. Leith was joined by a panel including Sir Ian Wood, Andrew Reid, chief executive of Douglas-Westwood, Rebecca Wain, a 24-year-old graduate geologist and Michael Engell-Jensen, co-chairman of Offshore Europe at the Energy Voice – Securing Our Future event at the Tivoli in Aberdeen.
