Offshore business confidence rising according to survey

Confidence is rising among offshore businesses, according to a new survey.

The industry body Oil and Gas UK said its quarterly index showed particularly buoyant attitudes in the drilling and well services sectors.

It said while confidence and activity were both rising, the outlook was still short of where it was a few years ago.

Brian Kinkead, Oil and Gas UK's supply chain director, said: "It is encouraging to see this continuous upward trend in business confidence."
