So that would mean rest of the UK is not depended on the Scottish oil Industry ?

Correct. The amount of oil there is no longer enough to support Scotland let alone the rest of the UK. This is partly due to the crash in oil prices but also the oil reserves off Scotland are diminishing.

However, it is not the Scottish oil industry. Those who have drilled for oil there are international companies who have been granted licenses by the British government not by the Scottish parliament. Control of the oil would probably pass to the Scottish government along with the revenue from taxation if they declared independence but the economics of oil would not help them to maintain their level of economy at current oil prices.
(mostly harmless)

Nearest to whiskey or whisky I will drink is Southern Comfort but on the whole I stick to my beer.
