Energy company backs ‘Blueprint’
A START-UP company specialising in technology for gas and oil wells has joined thousands of other firms across the East of England in calling on the Government to back industry in the region.
DisruptaTek Ltd has signed up to the Space for Ideas Blueprint for Growth campaign, which includes calls for investment and support for the UK’s “Energy Coast”.
The company, which has offices in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, is developing an innovative diagnostic tool for use in oil wells, with possible applications for carbon capture storage.
Cheryl Willis, director of DisruptaTek, said: “We are pleased to sign up to a campaign that highlights the continued need to support businesses in the energy sector to develop the technology and know-how as well as increase access to global opportunities. A strong partnership between the Government and business is critical to support the energy sector in the region, a major generator and supplier of energy to the UK. We welcome the Space for Ideas campaign – we need more and more voices to be heard in Whitehall.”
The Space for Ideas group includes key employers from across the region, and its Blueprint for Growth campaign sets out the priorities on which they believe the Government should be focusing. Around 80,000 firms and individuals have signed up to the campaign. Others can add their support online at www.eastofengland.uk.com/blueprint .
