Ashley Shackleton, external affairs Officer, Oil & Gas UK
The oil and gas industry is by some margin the single largest industrial contributor to the UK economy. In addition to its economic contribution, and its role in protecting energy security, the industry is a world class driver of innovation in UK science and technology. The oil and gas industry also creates and sustains an impressive number of skilled and valued jobs. Unfortunately these facts are not well known or understood. By proudly and consistently telling our story we will raise awareness about our contribution, improve understanding of what we contribute, and ensure we attain the support and recognition we need to thrive as an industry. This session will explore the public’s perceptions of the UK oil and gas industry and how we may hope to change them.
