Decom North Sea Awards Winners Unveiled
The winners of the 2019 Decom North Sea Awards have been revealed at the annual Decom Offshore conference and exhibition.
The second annual awards shine the spotlight on the decommissioning sector for excellence in innovation and collaboration, whilst highlighting the contribution of young professionals in the industry.
The winners of the three categories were announced at an awards dinner held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) and attended by more than 140 decommissioning professionals.
The Outstanding Innovation category was taken home by Ecosse IP for its Ambient Lifter, which offers a cost effective and safe subsea lifting solution.
Excellence in Collaboration was awarded to Spirit Energy for their partnership with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre, recognizing their roles in transformational thermite technology in significantly reducing well decommissioning costs.
A new category for this year, ‘Young Professional in Decommissioning’, recognized the work undertaken by the next generation of industry professionals and was awarded to Rebecca Allan, decommissioning lead of Xodus Group.
Decom North Sea’s CEO, 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.”
