Guide to oil & gas regulation in the UK

Clyde & Co's oil & gas team are pleased to release our latest guide to oil & gas regulation in the UK

Over the course of the past year, we have seen substantial changes in the regulatory landscape for UK oil & gas with the introduction of the Energy Bill and establishment of the Oil & Gas Authority.

In this guide we take a look at the key regulations affecting companies operating on the UK Continental Shelf. We outline recent changes, consider the main regulators and their role and review the required licences in relation to the exploration and production of oil & gas. We also explore key issues such as liabilities and responsibilities in relation to health, safety and the environment and decommissioning.
