Oil and Gas Authority (OGA)


The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) was formed in 2015 to deliver the UK's Maximising Economic Recovery strategy through effective regulation and stewardship of the country's oil and gas resources. An independent, arm's length organisation, the OGA has a critical role to play in influencing operating behaviours in the industry to create greater collaboration, and in promoting investment in the UK oil and gas sector. Headquartered in Aberdeen, the OGA was established as one of the key recommendations of Sir Ian Wood's 2014 review of oil and gas exploration and production activities on the UK Continental Shelf.
