Economic contribution of the UK downstream oil sector

The downstream oil sector is the backbone of the UK economy.

Our industry's contribution is felt across all of the UK's nations and regions, including through activity we enable elsewhere in the economy.

The sector contributed £7.7 billion directly to UK GDP in 2016 and supported directly and indirectly 300,000 jobs, as well as enabling all other key sectors of the economy - from chemicals and other manufacturing to almost all transport-related business - to grow.
