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
The industry is regulated by a number of statutory bodies including the Environment Agency (EA) in England, Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) in Wales, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Onshore oil and gas regulation in the UK has been recognised as an exemplar by the rest of the world. In addition the industry is governed by 14 separate pieces of European legislation.
UK gas is better for our environment, so let’s use it.
The UK currently imports around half of its supply of gas. This is the same gas that’s crucial in the heating of our homes, the powering of our businesses and the success of our industries. By producing our gas onshore here in the UK instead of importing it from overseas, we could not only create 64,000 jobs, a new stream of UK tax revenue and direct investment into our communities, but help our environment too. So let’s get on with it, not just for our economy, but for the world we live in.
