  • Nexstep

Public face of re-use and decommissioning

As the public face of re-use and decommissioning of oil and gas infrastructure in the Netherlands, Nexstep will inform and engage stakeholders and the general public about its work.

They will do that by promoting transparency about re-use and decommissioning including its scope in the Netherlands by yearly publishing the Re-use and Decom report, develop information material on the challenges of decommissioning (in print and online), weekly updates on LinkedIn and regular news items on their website.

Thus making the citizens of the Netherlands aware of the impressive task that is going to be carried out at the North Sea in the coming decades.
