Speaking at, Decom North Sea, a UK focused offshore decommissioning conference, Amec’s business development manager, Bob Churchill started to set out the company’s stall for the rapidly growing offshore oil and gas decommissioning market.

Nuclear To Oil & Gas

Bob Churchill told the conference that Amec had not only worked within nuclear decommissioning, but “had led the development of Lifetime Plans”

He said that leading from the nuclear sector would result in cost savings and make the ‘seamless transition’ from an assets late life operation.

Bob Churchill said: “When combined with our extensive oil and gas skills and knowledge, this means we are uniquely placed to bring this learning to the North Sea, where we are already shaping the new horizon and proactively finding solutions.”

“Our experience is now increasingly sought after internationally because we have the widest experience to address the next steps boldly and at pace.”
