The winners of the 2019 Decom North Sea Awards have been unveiled.

More than 140 industry figures attended the ceremony at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) last night ahead of the Decom Offshore conference today.

The Outstanding Innovation accolade went to Ecosse IP for its Ambient Lifter machine for subsea lifting.

Meanwhile Excellence in Collaboration went to Spirit Energy for its partnership with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC).

The pair worked together without a formal contract on “transformational” thermite technology to significantly reduce costs for shutting down oil and gas wells

A new category for 2019, Young Professional in Decommissioning, went to Rebecca Allan, decommissioning lead of Xodus Group.

Grethchen Haskins, CEO of helicopter safety association HeliOffshore, spoke at the dinner examining the conference’s key theme of human factors in decommissioning.

The conference and the awards ceremony are orgnanised by industry body Decom North Sea, which aims to connect capability across the sector to minimise decommissioning costs and their burden on the taxpayer.

Chief executive John Warrender said: “Highlighting the pioneering work of our members is an important part of the Decom North Sea remit.

“Inherent to the success of our sector is a commitment to both technological innovation and cooperation, and it is our honour to celebrate those achievements.

“The awards offer a fantastic platform to share experiences with the most relevant of audiences.

“I pass on my congratulations to all those who were shortlisted and look forward to seeing what the next year has in store for the decommissioning sector.”
