Over 250 delegates & 28 exhibitors attended Decom North Sea's flagship event on the 27th of May at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre which was sponsored by DNV GL.
The aim of the 2014 one day event, entitled Realising Opportunities for All, was to highlight the many and varied technologies/ techniques required within the sector and to showcase some of the latest industry developments and thinking. This was the second time this conference had been held after its launch last year as a way to bring together professionals from all tiers of the decommissioning industry to discuss and debate how future projects can be undertaken in the safest and most environmentally and cost effective ways.
Event proceedings were kicked off on the 26th of May, with an Evening Networking Reception held at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, sponsored by Stork. The following day provided delegates with a mixture of plenary sessions, exhibition space and 1-2-1 opportunities.

- Session 1 – Strategy, Planning & Preparation for Cessation of Production (COP).
- Session 2 – Late life Management Opportunities

- Session 4 – From a demand chain to a supply chain.
