    Decom North Sea to host "lunch and learn" event

    News // November 19, 2013
    Decom North Sea (DNS), the offshore oil and gas decommissioning forum, will be hosting a lunch and learn to provide attendees with an insight into supply chain companies’ decommissioning capabilities.
    The lunch and learn will take place on Wednesday, November 27, at the Palm Court Hotel, Aberdeen, from 12-2pm.
    The event will include a presentation from DECO (Diving, Engineering & Consultancy Office), which has been active in offshore decommissioning for a number of years specialising in solutions for offshore infrastructure removal.
    Joining DECO will two other supply chain companies. Ethos Environmental Ltd speaking about “legacy” hazards, highly toxic and environmentally sensitive materials that can be found in all offshore installations, and how to manage them.
    Wild Well Control will provide the day’s final presentation with a discussion on abandonment and decommissioning of offshore structures based on years of project experience.
    DNS chief executive Brian Nixon said: “Our lunch and learn events are a great way for people within the decommissioning sector to network and share news of best practice. We look forward to this month’s event, which comes after a successful annual conference with Oil and Gas UK, which promoted knowledge share and collaboration across companies within the industry. We look to foster this dialogue throughout the year, and our lunch & learn events are a good way to achieve this.”
    DNS has grown since its inception in 2010 to have more than 220 members drawn from operators, major contractors, service specialists and technology developers. With annual decommissioning expenditure in the North Sea forecast to top £1billion within a few years, DNS was set up to tackle the main areas of weakness, which are inhibiting decommissioning supply-chain capability.
