Major Project - Oil & Gas - Caithness and North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership

West of Shetland frontier fields and the Northern North Sea

Major Project - Oil & Gas

This will address the opportunities created by West of Shetland frontier fields and the Northern North Sea

There is significant potential in oil and gas support for jobs in the area. Far from a declining industry, we see expansion, particularly in these markets with substantial oil company investments over the coming years. Scrabster Harbour is taking advantage of this with additional and modern infrastructure. This Major project builds on that work to add the value and maximise the benefit to the local supply chain and look for inward investment
