Leading businesses join forces to deliver a one-stop decom hub and potential new virtual deep water quayside.

A new alliance of leading businesses in the North Sea Oil & Gas decommissioning sector, has been formed and launched today (18 March) in Dundee. Named Forth and Tay Decommissioning, the alliance of businesses has been created with a shared vision to position Dundee as the UK Hub for North Sea oil and gas decommissioning.

One of the founding partners, Charles Hammond, Chief Executive of Forth Ports (owners of the Port of Dundee), said: “Through significant private investment and strong partnerships, Dundee now offers a full service for the North Sea Oil and Gas decommissioning sector.  The proximity to the skills base in Dundee, along with unrivaled land space and heavy lift quayside, makes Dundee the logical choice for large scale decommissioning in Scotland. The study into a virtual deep water quay will ensure that we take advantage of the deep water in the Forth to accommodate the largest of decom projects.”
