Editor's Comment 

The UK oil and gas sector is fighting hard in a bid to restore competitiveness, and expects to have improved efficiency and its average unit operating cost by more than 40% compared with two years ago.

The current challenges for the offshore oil & gas industry are significant. But it is also important to recognise there are also continuing opportunities. Concerted action by the industry to improve efficiency across the sector is leading to an estimated 22% – over £2 billion – reduction in the cost of operating existing assets by the end of 2016. Supported by the first annual production increase for 15 years, the unit cost of operating UK oil and gas assets will also improve.
