The research has been funded by the Scottish Funding Council as part of a broader package of thirteen projects examining the concept of skills utilisation. This particular project is intended to establish current trends in skills utilisation in the oil and gas industry, and to lay the foundations for an evaluative study of the way in which specific skills utilisation practices can and / or do operate in an oil and gas context.
