Decom North Sea (DNS), the representative body for the offshore decommissioning industry, will this week host a Lunch and Learn session which will provide an update on a significant decommissioning project.

The event reflects DNS’ primary objective, which is to bring the supply and demand together, facilitating a common understanding of decommissioning requirements across the supply chain both in the short and longer term. Taking place this Wednesday (27th), Maersk Oil UK will be in attendance, discussing developments within the Leadon Decommissioning Project - including a résumé of work already completed.

Delegates will hear from Martin Simms, Leadon Decommissioning Project Manager, who will also be taking a look ahead to future removal and abandonment activities which are planned to take place over the next couple of years, giving an insight into the expected timeline and potential work scopes with the supply chain.

Harkand - contracted by Maersk Oil UK to conduct decommissioning activities in the Leadon field - will follow up with an overview of the first phase of the Leadon decommissioning campaign, from a supply chain perspective.

Karen Seath, interim chief executive of Decom North Sea anticipates a high level of attendance at this event: “A well-informed relationship between operators and the supply chain will be key to the successful future of decommissioning. Open communication between the two is paramount and these complementary sessions will provide a valuable case study, highlighting best practice, as well as the potential for future opportunities.”

Wednesday’s event will also hear from the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT), whose International Salvage & Decommissioning Committee brings together experts from multi-disciplinary sources to encourage debate and the spread of knowledge into the sector.  

This Lunch and Learn takes place at Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre, on Wednesday 27 April, 12 – 2pm. To book, please click here or contact Jennifer Dunbar at for more information.
