Energy Minister John Hayes is to speak at a new one-day event for the oil and gas decommissioning sector.
He joins a line-up including some of the sector’s most experienced figures who will present at Decom Offshore 2013, being held by the Decom North Sea (DNS) forum. It is taking place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Wednesday.
The aim of the day, entitled Decom Offshore – Confronting Challenges, Creating Opportunities, is to introduce operators and major contractors to innovative technologies, techniques and solutions for decommissioning projects.
DNS chief executive Brian Nixon said: “We welcome the fact the UK energy minister is attending and recognises the growing importance of the decommissioning sector. Each session will cover the major health, safety, environmental, technical and execution challenges being faced by operators and contractors when undertaking decommissioning projects.”
