Oil and gas trade body drops ‘oil and gas’ from its name

By Matt Oliver: 31 January 2022 • 4:20pm

The trade group that represents UK oil and gas companies is dropping the words “oil and gas” from its name to reflect the ongoing rise of green energy.

Oil and Gas UK will be renamed Offshore Energies UK from February 14, the body said on Monday.

It follows a year-long strategic review by the group, which said the change reflects “the evolving nature of the industry”.

OGUK said its members, which include BP, British Gas owner Centrica, Shell and Chevron approved the name change in December.
