North-East ‘Got To Be Ready’ For Decomm Projects, Says Well Expert

Decomm North Sea’s chief executive, Tom Leeson, said yesterday that the growing north-east decommissioning sector has “got to make sure that we’re ready for projects” if it is to capitalise on what could be a boom in North Sea decomm contracts.

Speaking during a Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) lecture at Aberdeen University, Mr Leeson  warned of previous announcements in the 1990’s and early 2000’s of a North Sea decommissioning explosion, and questioned whether one might take off now.

He said: “We’re seeing a burgeoning cohort coming into the decommissioning industry, but in an industry that is still evolving no one has all the answers. Some people are talking about an explosion again, but is one coming? Who knows.”
