star this property answer text <p>The UK Oil and gas industry remains a priority for the whole Government.</p><p>In the recent Autumn Budget the Government announced the introduction of a Transferable Tax History mechanism for UK Continental Shelf oil and gas producers for deals that complete on or after 1 November 2018. This initiative is a world first and should encourage new entrants and unlock fresh investment for a basin that still holds up to 20 billion barrels of oil. In addition, the Chancellor during his recent visit to Aberdeen announced additional funding of £5 million to help stimulate exploration activity in the UK Continental Shelf. This is on top of the £2.3 billion of Government support for the industry over recent years through initiatives likes the £250m Aberdeen City Deal Package and reducing tax that the industry pays in recognition of the challenging conditions which face the sector and to encourage investment.</p><p>Ministers have regular discussions with the industry regulators, including the Oil and Gas Authority who is charged with maximising economic recovery of oil and gas reserves in the UK Continental Shelf.</p>

For example, in the 2015 and 2016 Budgets, the Government delivered a fiscal package of measures worth £2.3bn to encourage investment in the sector and support jobs, placing the UK Continental Shelf amongst the most competitive fiscal regimes in the world; and in July 2016, the Oil and Gas Workforce Plan was published to address both short and long-term issues in the sector by retaining world class skills and expertise through redeploying skilled workers to other infrastructure projects and matching employees with jobs that require a similar skill set.</p>
