The SNP has welcomed the North Sea Oil and Gas UK report that shows the highest investment in the industry for more than three decades.
Commenting, Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford said:
"It makes abundantly clear that George Osborne got it badly wrong in 2011 with his surprise tax raid on the industry and that he was right to heed our calls to undo his damage at the earliest opportunity.
"The oil and gas sector clearly has a bright future ahead of it and with the powers of an independent Scotland we can ensure that these fantastic resources are put to the best possible use on behalf of people in Scotland."
