Removal of the remains of the Buchan Alpha oil platform has been completed in Shetland.
The delivery of a North Sea oil platform to Lerwick highlights the Shetland port’s status as a “centre of excellence” for decommissioning, a joint-venture has said.
Veolia, the company responsible for the decommissioning and recycle of the Buchan Alpha oil production vessel, has donated around 150kg of leftover foodstuffs to the Shetland Foodbank.
A topside module from Shell’s Leman field in the southern North Sea was delivered Great Yarmouth for dismantling today.
Energy logistics provider Peterson has teamed up with Veolia to develop a £1million decommissioning facility in Great Yarmouth. Peterson was awarded £70,000 from New Anglia LEP’s flagship Growing Business Fund, to help establish the new facility.
