Decom North Sea (DNS), the offshore oil & gas decommissioning forum, is staging a learning journey to explore future offshore decommissioning opportunities in Shetland.
The visit is taking place on May 9 and 10 to help members understand what Shetland can offer the offshore decommissioning industry and to identify opportunities for future collaborations and partnerships.
DNS Chief Executive Brian Nixon said: “Shetland is likely to play a key role in future offshore decommissioning projects due to its location in the crossroads of the North Sea and the Atlantic. It is strategically located to service and support offshore decommissioning activity in the northern and central North Sea as well as to the West of Shetland.
“Lerwick is positioning itself as a centre of excellence in decommissioning, marine support and logistics due to having a comprehensive portfolio of benefits such as proven capability, experienced contractors and workforce, sheltered very deep water and excellent shipping links with the mainland.
“Previous trips to Shetland have been highly beneficial and we believe our members who attend this year’s learning journey will be able to build useful knowledge about opportunities for their companies. It has the added benefit of allowing the supply chain to seek opportunities for collaborations by giving them the chance to network and build valuable connections for the future.’’
