Following a consultation that took place between 6 November 2015 and 18 December 2015, the OGA has now finalised their Corporate Plan for the period 2016 - 2021.

The Corporate Plan describes the OGA’s priorities and plans, incorporating outstanding actions from our Call to Action Report and the Wood Review in support of our ambition to be a world-leading regulator, setting the framework for a sustainable and competitive UK oil and gas industry. It sets out the key areas the OGA will regulate, influence and promote and how the MER UK Forum and boards will harness the tripartite relationship between industry, government and the OGA to delivery tangible outcomes.

The document also includes details on OGA’s projected income, expenditure and funding for the period 2015/16 to 2019/20 inclusive. The majority of our expenditure will be provided by the levy on industry, and the OGA is focused on delivering a high-quality service and value-for-money to industry.
