North Sea Decommissioning Threatened By Supply Chain Bottlenecks

Rigzone reports that “significant supply chain bottlenecks, including a lack of skilled workers, will prove to be a key challenge for the oil and gas industry as it aims to complete decommissioning work in the UK North Sea during the next couple of decades, according to a new report from engineering consultancy Arup.”  

“Arup, which prepared the report for Decom North Sea and Scottish Enterprise, said that skilled workers who want to work in the oil and gas industry tend to favor roles in exploration and production, suggesting that the decom industry is not perceived as interesting or as financially rewarding as E&P.”
