In 2016 the OGA introduced a set of Stewardship Expectations across the oil and gas lifecycle. These were designed in consultation with industry, to give operators and licensees clarity on expected behaviours and good practices. The new Expectation is the 11th in the set and focuses on the following areas:

  • Creating a culture of GHG emissions reduction within the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS)
  • Ensuring that GHG emissions reduction is considered throughout the entire oil and gas lifecycle
  • Collaboration between all relevant parties to support and progress potential energy integration developments (such as electrification, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen)
