Energy accreditation and consultancy firm DNV GL has appointed Neil Fraser as its new decommissioning lead.
Mr Fraser also heads up DNV GL Noble Denton marine services.
He said: “Decommissioning activity is predicted to grow over the next few years and it is time for us to step forward and share our expertise.
“Oil & Gas UK recently said that 11 decommissioning projects have been announced by companies this year and in the Chancellor’s recent budget statement, he spoke of his aspiration to make Scotland a global hub for oilfield decommissioning, all good news for the supply chain.
“DNV GL is uniquely placed to offer decommissioning stakeholders, and the supporting supply chain, a tailored suite of risk management services, and our track record demonstrates that we serve as a trusted partner.”
