About us

OCA the authoritative voice for our membership

  • Represent the UK’s oil and gas contracting industry
  • Build and use influence
  • Promote sustainable business for members
  • Collectively tackle the challenges facing members in a mature UKCS
  • Committed to world class safety performance


Since beginning in 1995 the OCA have represented companies in a range of activities, including construction and decommissioning. We work directly with trade unions, industry bodies and government to maintain mutually beneficial links and deliver the best outcome for our members and their employees.

As a member of the OCA you have the opportunity to engage with our current members, and influence actions and decisions that impinge upon the operational or commercial concers of our membership.


The OCA continues to provide Aker Offshore Partner with an exceptionally effective forum for addressing key issues facing our sector of the energy industry. Through the OCA, we have a common voice to keep the offshore contracting sector at the forefront of current competitive challenges.

It also facilitates a wide range of opportunities for networking at different levels with the oil and gas supply chain, other contractors and our clients. This enables our people to increase their personal development through participation in broader discussions, which can lead to a challenge to existing practice and subsequent value creation. Specifically for Aker, it provides a showcase for our technologies and specialist services.
