Oil and Gas industry overview
The oil and gas industry affects almost every aspect of our lives – from how we heat our homes and providing fuel for transport, to being used as raw materials to manufacture common products we use on a daily basis. Whilst there are ambitious targets to increase the use of renewable energy sources (such as wind and solar power), oil and gas will remain the most significant and critical natural resources of energy for the UK.
With the oil and gas industry set to play a key role in the UK energy sector, economic development and environmental issues, the chance to be part of this influential industry is an appealing prospect.
