Nicola Sturgeon will visit Aberdeen today to announce a new multi-million pound decommissioning fund for the North Sea.
The First Minister is poised to announce an initial £5million to boost the sector in the form of a Decommissioning Challenge Fund (DCF)- with the promise of more funds to come in future years.
Roger Esson, chief executive of industry members organisation Decom North Sea (DNS), said the fund’s creation could be a “small but significant step”.
Mr Esson said: “It’s encouraging to see that the Scottish Government has started to look into support measures following the launch of the Decommissioning Action Plan late last year.
“We look forward to receiving more information regarding the DCF and how it will support infrastructure upgrades in Scotland and understand how we can support the DCF board’s objectives and work with our member companies in this part of the decommissioning sector.”
