Shell E&P UK
onshore inventory clearance
John Lawrie Metals were requested by an existing customer to assess, uplift, and recycle surplus historic inventory from a number of onshore locations.
By engaging and working closely with all interested parties, a 100% recycling / repurpose rate for the almost 500te of stored materials.
Our experienced team worked quickly and efficiently to remove the material from site against a tight delivery deadline. Working closely with the client and their warehousing contractor, the inventory was loaded onto 35 flatbed trailes and transported to our SEPA licenced facility in Aberdeen for sorting, segregation , and processing.
Due to the size and configuration of some items, specialist transport services supplemented our own vehicles in order to remove the oversize items thereby clearing the storage areas as quickly as possible allowing all hot-cutting and downsizing operations to be completed on our own site.
The equipment delivered for recycling and repurposing included various valves, spools, wire rope, offshore infrastructure, pumps, containers, and stored flexibles.
We are the largest metal recycler and exporter of processed metal in North and North-East Scotland and an experienced member of the decommissioning supply chain. With current strategically located licensed facilities in Aberdeen, Shetland, Evanton and Montrose, and the addition of our new quayside facility in Dundee opening in 2020 bringing our combined annual licensed tonnage to 360,000 tonnes, we are your decommissioning partner of choice.
