UK Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng will meet with North Sea oil and gas producers on Tuesday to discuss the government’s windfall tax.

The roundtable discussion will be attended by executives of North Sea-focused firms such as Harbour Energy Plc and Neptune Energy Group Ltd., but not the international oil majors, according to people with knowledge of the meeting.
