The Scottish Government continues to monitor the impact that low oil prices is having on the oil and gas industry and its wider supply chain. This was discussed at the energy jobs taskforce meeting on the 23 March 2016. The state of the economy report from the chief economist, published on 3 June 2016, provides an update on the oil and gas sector.
