Unique Supply Company opportunity to help reduce offshore decommissioning costs across both UK and Dutch SNS

The first ever truly collaborative UK/Netherlands Oil and Gas event is being held in Norwich on Tuesday 9th October and then repeated in Amsterdam on 24th October. The aim being to explore how, by combining the capabilities of our supply chain, we can reduce the costs of decommissioning the wider Southern North Sea (SNS) basin.

The EEEGR Decommissioning Special interest group is staging this significant event which will feature presentations from leading UK and Dutch operators, including Shell/NAM, Oranje-Nassau, Spirit Energy, Neptune and Perenco.

The event, which has been developed collaboratively by the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) and Nexstep in the Netherlands, is being held at Norwich City Football Club and attendance can be booked through the following link – https://www.eeegr.com/events/uk-netherlands-oil-gas-hackathon/

Decommissioning will cost the UK in the region of £60-70bn, according to OGA figures, with significant costs also forecast for the Netherlands representing an enormous opportunity for the supply chain in both countries.

Know-how, innovative solutions and technologies will be vital in reducing costs and this interactive operator engagement will provide an opportunity for service companies to make new contacts and share their ideas as well as enabling solutions in response to published challenges..

Simon Gray, chief executive of EEEGR, said: “The oil and gas industry has to work together if the costs around decommissioning are to be kept to a minimum and the opportunities it presents to the supply chain are to be fully realised.

“These events will give people from the industry in the UK and the Netherlands the chance to explore the challenges of decommissioning in the shallower waters of the SNS basin in interactive sessions and connect with potential new clients.”

Bill Cattanach, Head of Supply Chain, OGA said: “Momentum has been building for this first ever cross-border interactive engagement event with our Dutch neighbours. This unique occasion will create the environment for SNS operators and service sector to come together in a collaborative environment where growing opportunities for the supply chain are expected to be unveiled.

“It’s great to see UK and Netherlands combining forces to address major technological and cost-saving challenges and we are optimistic this powerful approach will reap success.”

Jacqueline Vaessen, General Manager, Nexstep said: “We see this event as an interesting first step to encourage collaboration between operators and the supply chain by brainstorming on actual decommissioning challenges operators face in Southern North Sea. This is important because only with collaboration we will be able to reduce the decommissioning costs.”

DECOM Hub Subscriber ACN Offshore rebrands to N-ERGISE

UK based engineering company ACN Offshore Ltd has undergone a total brand review and now unveils its new name, logo and website to support its evolution as a multi-sector engineering solutions provider.
Having recently moved from the former Shell Offshore Base in Lowestoft to Great Yarmouth the business has seen a significant transformation and growth, the new identity is seen to reflect the company’s forward vision for the future.
Remaining an independently and privately-owned company ACN Offshore Ltd will change name to N-ERGISE Ltd. The company’s legal entity and registration will remain as company registration no.09452821 (UK registered).
The new brand identity reflects N-ERGISE’s commitment to provide the very highest level of service across multiple sectors. Early on the company set out an objective to work across the Energy sectors, last year this was successfully achieved by simultaneously having major projects in the Oil & Gas, Marine, Nuclear and Renewables sectors. The new name reflects the success the company has had from its diversification across all the Energy sectors.
The website (www.n-ergise.one) has also been rebranded accordingly. As part of the company’s marketing investment plan the website will see a full redesign and relaunch later in the year.
Whilst the company rebrands to N-ERGISE it continues to play a vital role in Hook-Up & Commissioning activities on a major UK Offshore Wind Farm, the objective for all stakeholders is to safely ‘Energise’.
The company will continue to N-ERGISE…
Commenting on N-ERGISE’s rebrand, Business Development Manager, David Windscheffel said;
“It is important that N-ERGISE retains its established values but at the same time develops a new and modern identity. The rebranding exercise will ensure that we get the right message out there. We feel it’s important to let people know we are not just an ‘offshore’ company, we equally offer and provide as many services onshore. The landscape for the Energy sector is rapidly changing and we recognise the need for change.”

Supply Chain Networking Event Cheshire


DECOM Hub Webinar – Little-known particles called muons are helping to map the insides of pyramids, and to spot missing nuclear waste 

The Nature Physics Journal describes how Muography is making its mark

Webinar Click to Listen 

‘Did you know that millions of cosmic muons pass through your body every single day?’  Dr David Mahon, Lynkeos Technology Ltd   




Don’t worry if you missed this morning’s eye opening webinar from Dr David Mahon – ‘Lynkeos ‘From academic research to nuclear industry deployment: The Lynkeos Story‘. Sponsored by Nuclear Engineering International

Put simply …..Muon technology can see what other technology cannot. It started out as an idea in a university office, some 10 years ago and soon it will be used to solve some of the worlds most hazardous nuclear decommissioning challenges – with huge scope in other sectors.  It is incredibly safe and cost effective, saving vast amounts of tax payer money over the coming years and decades.

Lynkeos Technology is now set for commercial deployment at Sellafield and is the only technology of its kind in the world. This amazing journey shows what is possible when you combine innovative thinking, R & D support, along with grit and determination.

TotalDECOM & Lynkeos first met at TotalDECOM 2014, where Lynkeos presented their Muon Technology & its potential uses in “viewing” the insides of nuclear barrels. “ It was a research project with support from Sellafield and National Nuclear Laboratory, within Glasgow University and has since gained support from NDA and Innovate UK, among others”

Take a listen in your own time at this very inspiring webinar which is all about Muon Technology, what it is, its applications in decommissioning & the journey from a new idea though to full commercialisation – the lessons learnt.

For SME’s or individuals like Lynkeos with great ideas, we have a Supply Chain Networking Event coming up at Thornton Science Park, Ince, Cheshire Thursday 5th July.

There will be a selection of presentations, 1 to 1 appointments and a small exhibition, with organisations like WYG, Centre of Nuclear Excellence, Sellafield, Urenco, Wood. Orano, Cammell Laird, NIASS and University of Cheshire / Thornton Science Park – who will be talking about a funding programme currently available to help SMEs commercialise innovative ideas, much like the Lynkeos story we heard through today’s TotalDECOM Hub webinar.

TotalDECOM 2018 in the Press – Nuclear Decommissioning Authority chief executive speaks at conference

The chief executive of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has addressed hundreds of people at an industry conference.

David Peattie was one of the keynote speakers at the three-day TotalDecom2018 event, where he spoke about decommissioning progress, innovation and cross-sector working.

The flagship annual event, in Manchester, welcomed top representatives from the nuclear, oil and gas, defence, renewable energy and waste sectors.

Mr Peattie talked about the task of managing the energy legacy safely and responsibly, as well as identifying the opportunities and overcoming the challenges of decommissioning.

Highlighting the collaboration between the nuclear and oil and gas sectors, he said: “Technologies developed for use on the NDA’s sites, such as snake-arm robotics, are now being used to solve challenges in the oil and gas sector.

“In return, remotely operated vehicles first used in oil and gas are now being used to clean up hazardous nuclear facilities, such as the legacy ponds at  Sellafield.
