Shetland businesses poised for decommissioning windfall, says trade body
Shetland is set to benefit from massive opportunities presented by offshore decommissioning, according to a large trade organisation holding a forum in Lerwick tonight.
Decom North Sea is staging the event at the Shetland Museum to demonstrate how dismantling and removing major pieces of oil and gas infrastructure could prove to be a real boon for business in the isles.
The Aberdeen-based organisation has been stepping up its work with the energy supply chain since it was established two years ago.
Recent reports have pointed to a £1 billion annual expenditure in North Sea decommissioning by 2015, although only seven per cent of projects have so far been completed.
Tonight’s event is due to take place from 6pm to 7.30pm.
