The US has announced it will withdraw from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a global standard on transparency in the resource industries, particularly oil and gas. We investigate the US government’s claim that the country’s legal framework prevents full EITI implementation and ask what the country’s withdrawal could mean for transparency and accountability in the global oil and gas sector.

We also take a look at new developments off the Namibian coast, draw up an interactive map of deepwater exploration winners and losers around the world, and speak to some of the winners of the 2017 Oil & Gas UK awards.

Plus, we ask whether a new conversion technique for methane could help to reduce methane flaring from gas operations, and take a look inside the subsea diving and testing facilities at the Underwater Centre at Fort William.
