NOF Energy backs Oil & Gas campaign
NOF Energy, the business development organisation for the oil, gas, nuclear and offshore renewables sectors, has backed Oil & Gas UK’s ‘Energising the Nation’s Future’ campaign.
The campaign aims to demonstrate the central role that the industry plays through innovation, job creation and its economic contribution – both direct and indirect.
The oil and gas industry supports 440,000 jobs across the UK, is the largest industrial investor, supplies the oil and gas to meet half the country’s primary energy needs and makes a major contribution to the UK’s overall prosperity.
The first step in the “Energising the Nation’s Future” campaign is to build a new picture of the industry’s UK-wide network of skilled workers and celebrate the breadth of the supply chain supported by the sector.
Oil & Gas UK is encouraging those who work across the industry to get involved in the campaign by registering their interest at energisingthenationsfuture.co.uk, mapping their location and relationship to the sector, and sharing their experiences.
George Rafferty, Chief Executive of NOF Energy, said: “I am encouraging our members to support ‘Energising the Nation’s Future’ as they form a core part of the supply chain serving the Oil & Gas sector. Being able to map the number of firms involved in the supply chain and their relationship with the Oil & Gas industry will further reaffirm the importance of the sector to the economy and our energy requirements.
“Oil & Gas is one of the UK economy’s biggest success stories and every company in the supply chain deserves recognition for their contribution. These companies are leading the way in creating innovative engineering and manufacturing solutions as well as creating skilled and high-value jobs.
“This campaign is a great way of highlighting the role the sector plays in the UK, both economically and socially, as well as demonstrating that it has a strong future, which will offer considerable opportunities for business and valid career paths for individuals.”
