Expertise in the North Sea oil and gas industry is abundant and it’s easy to see why. As a complex sector that has evolved and fine-tuned itself over the last 50 years, it continues to meet the bulk (almost 60%) of UK oil and gas demand and support – that’s more than 280,000 jobs in the supply chain.
