The onshore oil and gas industry has an excellent record in relation to health and safety and environment protection.

Onshore oil and gas regulation in the UK has been recognised as an exemplar by the rest of the world. The industry is regulated by a number of statutory bodies including the Environment Agency (EA), Health and Safety Executive (HSE) the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the local minerals planning authority. In addition the industry is governed by 14 separate pieces of European legislation.
