‘‘Offshore Energies UK congratulates Humza Yousaf as he becomes the new leader of the SNP and First Minister of Scotland. We wish him every success at this critical time for businesses and people looking for energy security and stability in their everyday lives,” said David Whitehouse, CEO of Offshore Energies UK.

"Energy policy is a big opportunity to drive high value jobs and growth for Scotland. Our rich heritage from oil and gas and Scotland’s supply chain puts us in a strong position to seize the opportunity.

"So, I’m looking forward to a highly collaborative relationship and building exciting new partnerships between government and industry for the good of Scotland and the wider UK.

"Our new Business Outlook report, published tomorrow, shows how we can lead the world if we nurture today’s homegrown energy production and give people certainty to carefully invest in tomorrow’s technologies and talent.’’
