what we do
We are a community of oil and gas exploration and production companies active on the UKCS who share knowledge and experience, working closely with other organisations and government to ensure collaboration and alignment.

what does it cost
if you only have (a) innovate licence(s) you pay £250 p.a. As soon as you progress or currently hold any production
licences the rate is £500 p.a


who are our members
Our Members tend to be either small UK exploration
companies (many originating via the Promote initiative) or
UK subsidiaries of larger foreign organisations which invest
in the UKCS along with seismic and infrastructure companies too.

when & where do we meet
We hold approx. 6 meetings per year, normally at the Geological Society, Piccadilly apart from our Christmas luncheon. Meetings start at 11am and end by 12.30 with a buffet lunch provided. AGM is also held once a year to approve accounts and elect board members.

who can join
You have to be a current UKCS licence holder. You can be an
exploration operator or a non-operating investor. If you grow so that you become a UKCS production operator you can stay on as a member. We will consider membership applications from small producers.

What does this pay for
We keep administration costs to a  minimum. We are lucky in getting help with essential functions on a pro-bono basis. We sometimes need to pay for professional or other services in pursuit of our agreed goals. We pay for lunches, hire of rooms, etc. at our meetings out of funds.
