RVA to present at Offshore Decommissioning Event

RVA’s managing director Richard Vann has been invited to speak at Decom North Sea’s Offshore Decommissioning Conference next month.

Funded by the Department for Energy & Climate Change (DECC), Scottish Enterprise and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, the Decom North Sea forum was established to tackle supply-chain issues within this highly specialist sector.

Richard joins a line-up of leading industry experts who will share their experience and innovative decommissioning strategies with the 300 delegates.

Commenting on the event Richard Vann said: “The scale of the structures to be dismantled in the oil and gas sector has led to a number of significant problems and delays. However, we at RVA know that to an extent these problems can be readily overcome by drawing on the expertise, experience and equipment amassed by decommissioning specialists working on comparatively complex facilities on shore.

“RVA for example has undertaken over 600 large scale high hazard decommissioning and dismantling projects worldwide, many of which have been within the oil and gas sectors and we fully understand the importance of balancing cost effective, innovative and pragmatic dismantling solutions with EHS excellence – there is much invaluable on shore knowledge and experience that will translate and add value to off shore dismantling programmes.

“Events such as this provide an excellent catalyst for change and I’m delighted to have been asked to play my part.”
