Two north-east firms have teamed up to provide a joint package of onshore decommissioning services.
NorSea Group (UK) and Scotoil Services said the new offering, named NSDecom, would be a one-stop-shop for operators’ quayside decommissioning needs.
It will provide a range of services including the receipt of waste and equipment, cleaning and cutting, and the final reuse or disposal option.
NorSea Group’s facility at Smith Quay in Peterhead will be the main centre of operations, though Aberdeen and Montrose could also be used.
Walter Robertson, managing director of NorSea Group (UK), said: “With the decommissioning sector being guided by SEPA, we recognised the importance of working alongside an experienced and well-established specialist waste contractor.
“Scotoil Services has more than 30 years of experience and both parties saw the benefits to the sector of combing NorSea Group’s quayside assets and logistics experience with Scotoil’s market-leading NORM decontamination service and special waste management capabilities.”
Craig Smith, managing director of Scotoil Services, said: “The collaborative alliance was developed in response to industry calls for more efficient and effective ways of working which would bring about lower costs and robust operational improvements.
“Together we have the key components to offer a complete and seamless onshore service which will benefit both operators and lead decommissioning contractors.”
