We have been successfully carrying out decommissioning projects involving the dismantling of large oilfield, subsea and industrial infrastructure for more than two decades. Our primary objective is to maximise reuse and recycling and minimise disposal. To this end, our processing methods result in high recovery and recycling rates for a wide range of materials, in many cases up to 100%.

We're all about sustainability and with legislation growing progressively tighter along with the increasing development of zero waste strategies, the need for a smarter approach to decommissioning is unequivocal.

Expertise, experience and
continous innovation

Decommissioning represents a significant opportunity as well as a challenge for the UK offshore oil and gas industry. Whether working directly with Operators, Tier 1 Contractors or other waste management companies, our expertise and experience in the onshore downsizing, deconstruction, processing, reuse and recycling of a wide range of subsea materials enables us to provide a single integrated package for our clients.


We have progressively developed our expertise in the dismantling, processing, recycling and disposal of a range of redundant subsea materials including flexible flowlines, umbilicals, manifolds, Christmas trees, mid-water buoys, mooring systems, wellheads and protection structures, concrete mattresses and other associated items.

Specialist Machinery & Equipment

Provision of specialist trucks, lifting and cutting equipment and a fully mobile, well-trained workforce as well as a highly innovative approach to project management and logistics means decisions are made quickly and jobs expedited efficiently. Our in-house HSE function includes method statements/risk assessments, training and competences.

Working Relationships

We have excellent working relationships with numerous third party suppliers and contractors, including Port operators. This means we have the ability to collect and/or receive redundant materials from a variety of onshore geographic locations throughout the UK to accommodate specific client requirements.

Strategically Located Across the UK

With multiple current strategically located licensed facilities in Aberdeen, Aberdeen Harbour, Lerwick, Evanton, Montrose and Montrose Port, bringing our combined annual licensed tonnage to 360,000 tonnes, we are your decommissioning partner of choice.
