April 2021

In light of Brexit, the possibility of a new attempt at Scottish independence is looming large. If it should happen, one of the big questions that will need answering is what happens to North Sea oil? We dive into the geopolitics of the region and ask what the future holds for Scotland’s relationship to the North Sea.

Also in this issue, we find out how Covid-19 has impacted the decommissioning sector, look at the efforts to solve offshore's methane problem, and learn about the problems of the offshore helicopter industry. 

Plus, we delve into the UK’s first postgraduate degree in Energy Transition Systems and Technologies, examine the situation around Total's $20bn LNG project in Mozambique, investigate BOSS's autonomous solution for seismic surveys, and ask whether Total's withdrawal from the American Petroleum Institute will prompt an exodus of majors.
