Among these partnership approaches is the

government and industry initiative PILOT,

which aims to maximise economic recovery

of offshore oil and gas resources.

PILOT (formerly the Oil and Gas Taskforce) is

chaired by the DECC Minister and central to

its approach is a novel way of cooperation

between industry and government to sustain

jobs and develop technologies and services

to succeed. Companies are encouraged to

collaborate on non-competitive issues and

look at new ways of working.

It has been highly successful with members

putting aside their individual business interests for the good of the industry.

PILOT includes Project Pathfinder which tracks

emerging projects and developments from

95% of the UK operators and provides information on new field developments. The technology

'demand chain' allows operators

to

inform the supply chain of future challenges.

The organisation has work groups to help

take the productive life of the UKCS beyond

2050 including groups on improving access

to infrastructure, enhanced oil recovery,

improved technology uptake and improved

exploration success.

One of these groups led to the formation of

the Industry Technology Facilitator to improve

the flow of new technology to the market;

another to the creation of LOGIC (Leading Oil

and Gas Industry Competitiveness) which

stimulates supply chain collaboration and

improves competitiveness.

The initiatives underline how the sector is

determined to revive its fortunes and continue to

make a major contribution to the UK's

energy mix.
