In this panel reflect on the transition of the oil and gas industry in Northeast Scotland faced by the decline in oil and gas production, diversifying of interests and a new focus on resiliency for the industry. Based on project experience, including work delivered in collaboration with Jacobs Engineering, the panel discuss challenges facing adoption of circular economy approaches to the decommissioning of oil and gas infrastructure. The discussion concludes with a look to the future and how the circular economy can apply to the oil and gas industry’s transition and what the future holds for the oil and gas industry.

Scott’s role is to facilitate and enable change within the Scottish energy sector to go beyond the linear, single use of assets.
