Mark Walker from Optimus Seventh Generation uses the concept of legacy to promote how leaders can engage and motivate the workforce to ensure the delivery of safe decommissioning projects, and reinforce the culture of care especially in unstable times.
Although the main focus for decommissioning is quite rightly centred upon offshore operations, the supply chain, and in particular the ports that support it, are going to play a key role.
Chris Bain and Matt North of Aberdeen Harbour Board talk about the role that Aberdeen Harbour is currently playing, what it hopes to provide in the future, and the vital elements that will make up a port supporting decommissioning activity going forward.
Grant Allan joins us from the Fraser of Allander Institute for the launch of the Chamber’s 24th oil and gas survey talking through the economic implications for the North-east economy of recent changes in the shape and size of the sector. The survey, sponsored by Bond Dickinson LLP, looks at the levels of activity in the sector this year as well as, critically, the levels of intended and actual investment.
