  • No deal Brexit and the UK oil and gas industry
  • Original news:
  • What is the likely impact to the oil and gas industry of a no deal Brexit? Which areas of the oil and gas business will likely be more affected and which ones will likely be less affected? Are there any potential upsides possible?
  • Is a lack of supply (as predicted by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) and backed by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)) likely? Could Brexit exacerbate that?
  • Data shows that investments in the oil and gas sector collapsed from 2014–15. Will Brexit further prevent and threaten the much-needed investment in the sector? Or will the recent increase in oil prices likely counteract any meaningful impact of Brexit?
