Energy ports and supply chain companies across Scotland are expected to benefit from a new study published today (5 February) into decommissioning opportunities in the oil and gas sector.

The study focuses primarily on oil and gas floating assets including FPSO platforms, MODUs and semisubmersible platforms, which could present a niche decommissioning opportunity for Scottish sites.

It was commissioned by Scottish Enterprise (SE), Highlands and Island Enterprise (HIE), and Scottish Government through the government’s Decommissioning Challenge Fund (DCF). It was carried out by Westwood Energy Group

Outlined within the study is the potential size and outlook of this specific market, onshore disposal site requirements, decommissioning processes for floating assets and opportunities that exist for the Scottish supply chain.
