Supply and Use Satellite Account Tables (Excel)
Balanced estimates of Scotland’s offshore gross value added (GVA) and the supply and use of goods and services by the oil and gas industry have been produced for the first time. Results span the period 1998-2014, with provisional estimates included for 2015 and 2016. This paper describes work to produce these experimental statistics, including the first estimates of Scottish trade which fully factor in North Sea oil and gas and the supply chain links between the offshore and onshore economies.
Provisional experimental results are included in this paper based on the new estimation framework and a range of illustrative data models. There are outstanding data gaps which lead to uncertainty in these results. The next phase of this project, which will be undertaken over the next six months, will identify data sources to fill these gaps and enable more certain estimates to be produced in future years, and, where possible, for past years as well.
All results in this paper are designated as experimental statistics. These are defined as new official statistics undergoing development and testing. The methods, data sources and results in this paper are open for ongoing consultation with users, and we welcome feedback on all aspects of the release. All users should be aware that the results in this paper are provisional and will be revised and updated when further developments are made. They should therefore be used with appropriate caution at this time.
