OPITO respond to Oil & Gas UK figures


10th June 2016

John McDonald, managing director of oil and gas industry skills organisation OPITO, said: “These new figures highlight the real human cost of the downturn, the impact of which continues to be felt across the North Sea. Losses of this scale, combined with the ongoing challenges, are difficult not just for those who have lost their jobs but also for those who remain. It is vital that we, as an industry, work together to mitigate the effect on the workforce as far as possible, providing support to companies and collaborating fully in order to attract investment and create a sustainable future for the UK oil and gas sector.”
