Decom North Sea (DNS) has officially opened bookings for Decom Offshore 2014, which promises to provide in-depth networking for companies of all sizes within the industry.

Decom Offshore 2014, a one-day event in Aberdeen, will take place on May 27. The aim of the day, entitled Realising Opportunities for All, is to highlight the many and varied technologies and techniques required within the sector and to showcase some of the latest industry developments and thinking.

DNS launched Decom Offshore last year as a way to bring together professionals from all tiers of the decommissioning industry to discuss and debate how future projects can be undertaken in the safest and most environmentally and cost-effective ways.

Brian Nixon, DNS chief executive, said: “The decommissioning industry is growing in prominence and will continue to do so in the coming years. The purpose of Decom Offshore is to bring together all relevant sectors of the industry to hold a wide discussion on how future decommissioning activity can be undertaken in the most efficient way and where the opportunities lie for future innovations and ideas.

“From large operators to small supply companies, there is a niche for everyone in the decommissioning sector, and we aim to advise on the challenges facing the sector as well as share news on technologies and innovations to addresses these changes.”

In addition to networking and open dialogue, the day will feature conference sessions on preparation, strategy management and supply chain opportunities from contractors. 

Graeme Lamont, Manager for Mature Assets - DNV GL, the event’s principal sponsor, said: “We feel that the way forward, particularly in the decommissioning sector, is through open communication and collaboration and are pleased to be a part of Decom Offshore 2014, which promises to make great steps in our understanding of decommissioning, both now and in the future.”

The day features a full schedule of workshops and presentations, as well as exhibition space and 1-2-1 opportunities. DNS will facilitate further discussion by setting up discussions between interested delegates and conference speakers. 

The evening prior to the conference, DNS will host a networking reception, which will take place at Aberdeen’s Maritime Museum.

DNS has grown since its inception in 2010 to have more than 220 members drawn from operators, major contractors, service specialists and technology developers. DNS was set up to tackle the main areas of weakness, which are inhibiting decommissioning supply-chain capability.
