• BRINDEX - The Association of British Independent Oil Exploration Companies
  • Promoting the role of the UK independent
  • Increasing awareness of the independents achievements
  • A vital contribution to both the industry and the local economy

The Association of British Independent Exploration Companies seeks to promote the role played by British independent exploration and production (E&P) companies in maintaining a powerful and effective UK based oil and gas industry.

By increasing awareness of the independents' achievements in developing oil and gas reserves on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), at UK onshore locations and overseas, BRINDEX aims to demonstrate our vital contribution to both the industry and the local economy.

Britain remains the only European country in which a substantial, independent E&P sector has been established.

Founded at the beginning of North Sea development in 1974, BRINDEX members now collectively hold interests in some 261 offshore and 55 onshore licences. These include interests in 84 producing oil fields and 38 producing gas fields.

Aggregate proven and probable UK reserves attributable to members at the end of 2018 amounted to 1,275 mmboe.

BRINDEX members have long been engaged in oil and gas activities overseas. Developments in the North Sea in recent years have added a wealth of modern technological know-how and expertise to the skill base of member companies who are increasingly using this knowledge to expand internationally.

Currently, BRINDEX members are active in 28 countries worldwide.

The combined market capitalisation of quoted BRINDEX members stands at some £7.7 billion (US$ 9.6 billion).

Worldwide proven plus probable reserves held by BRINDEX members at the end of 2018 amounted to 2,890 mmboe.


** Important Notice:
Fraudulent emails are in circulation purporting to be from BRINDEX using a false address and telephone numbers.

These emails appear to offer the candidate a contract of employment with us and, eventually, request an up-front payment to process immigration and entry clearance formalities, on the basis that these will be reimbursed by us upon satisfactory completion.

Please note BRINDEX is not involved in the recruitment of personnel and does not request money transfers from individuals who may be searching for employment.
