A Guide to Offshore Wind and Oil & Gas Capability

28 September 2011

The guide, which is a summary of more detailed work undertaken by Scottish Enterprise, provides detailed information to the oil and gas supply chain on those areas of the offshore wind project life cycle where there is the greatest opportunity for oil and gas involvement and future opportunities.
