A RECEPTION was held at the Marcliffe Hotel, Aberdeen, to celebrate the launch of the new forum, Decom North Sea. Decom North Sea is an Aberdeen-based industry forum set up in 2009 to maximise the business opportunities presented by North Sea decommissioning.
About 100 guests enjoyed drinks and a finger buffet in The Courtyard, as well as hearing from guest speaker Gunther Newcombe, vice-president decommissioning, BP Exploration Operating.
Brian Nixon, chief executive of Decom North Sea, also spoke at the reception. He expressed his sincere thanks to the Department of Energy and Climate Change for their sponsorship of the event, and also to Shepherd and Wedderburn for their administrative support.
