The Oil and Gas MER UK Forum

This guidance was withdrawn on

The Oil & Gas Authority launched a new website on 3 October 2016 to reflect its new status as a government company.

This formalises the transfer of the Secretary of State’s regulatory powers in respect of oil and gas to the OGA, and grants it new powers. This website will no longer be updated. Visitors should refer to

The MER UK Forum works across government, industry and the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) with the aim of maximising economic recovery of our oil and gas resources.
