Scottish supply chain companies are being asked to propose solutions for the cleaning and flushing of offshore oilfield infrastructure as part of the decommissioning programme jointly developed by private sector economic development company Opportunity North East (ONE) and Scottish Enterprise (SE).

ONE and SE are partnering to support SMEs to target future decommissioning business and are working with oil and gas operators on a series of project-specific opportunities. The programme enables SMEs to present their capabilities, skills and experience to operators in relation to future projects and potentially benefit from business support.

The third decommissioning opportunity in the programme addresses cleaning and flushing and is sponsored by operators including Shell. SMEs are invited to register their interest by 5 November 2018. Further information can be found at

There is a requirement to clean and flush certain types of offshore oilfield infrastructure as part of the decommissioning process. The current opportunity seeks propositions from companies using existing technology to clean and flush to agreed standards of cleanliness before follow-on decommissioning activities, such as removal or entry by personnel.

Submissions to the programme will be reviewed by an industry panel with successful applicants going on to pitch their solutions to the operator sponsors. Support will be provided to selected applicants throughout the process, including one-to-one support to build the business case and to develop the operator pitch as well as targeted business support.

The programme aims to give successful applicants access to and feedback from the end-user operators, improved understanding of operator needs, improved business cases and business development support. Operator sponsors gain access to targeted solutions focused on their future project needs, which can inform their related procurement and contracting strategies.
