United Kingdom Onshore Oil and Gas (UKOOG) represents the onshore oil and gas industry in the UK. The onshore oil and gas industry has existed for over 150 years and the processes of onshore drilling and hydraulic fracturing today are now established techniques. Recent resources have estimated there could be 1,329 trillion cubic feet of shale gas potential within central England.

In the UK today there are 120 sites with 250 wells in operation producing between 20,000 and 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day. Gas is an essential part of our economy providing electricity, heat and raw materials. Natural gas currently provides over 80% of our total heating requirements and over 30% of our total electricity generation.

Recently the Government has put in place a strategy to try to reduce our reliance on natural gas for heating but this is likely to take many years to develop as it will require adopting new technologies and transformation in overall behaviour. As a result, gas and shale gas will play a major part in essentially connecting the current system with any future low carbon technology that is introduced.
