Nordsøfonden, the Danish state’s oil and gas company and a partner in DUC (Danish Underground Consortium), and the Danish Energy Agency are very positive towards the joint efforts which may now be made in the new trade organisation Oil Gas Denmark.

Earlier this week, ShippingWatch described how the new organisation has been formed by uniting two former oil associations organised in the Federation of Danish Industry with the goal of fighting for the branding of the sector heavily affected by a lack of labour.
