SPE Offshore Europe 2017
Updates from Europe’s premier Oil and Gas exposition, and the first-established Decom Zone section
ABERDEEN, Scotland (September 6, 2017) – Ardent recently attended the latest SPE Offshore Europe (OE) 2017 exhibit, and held a booth in the newly established “Decom Zone”
As a demand for decommissioning solutions builds up in the North Sea, expos like the OE 2017 have featured more decommissioning-focused functions. Ardent operated a booth in the Decom Zone.
“We positioned ourselves in the SPE Expo Decom zone, the great amount of interest we received and the number of visitors to our booth was incredibly encouraging,” said Renier van der Bichelaer, Ardent’s Director of Decommissioning.
Of the 53,000 total visitors to the OE2017 conference, Ardent interfaced with a significant amount of potential business partners under their, “Decom Done Differently” banner.
Ardent staff met with UK regulators, operators and key players in the decommissioning supply chain.
The Ardent and Worley Parsons initiative for a Joint Industry Project on “Designing For Decommissioning” (D4D) has gained traction with a portal coming online on the Decom North Sea website in November.
The project has attracted participation from across the industry with large companies such as Shell, BP, Premier Oil, CNR and EPC companies such as Worley Parsons, consultants such as Xodus and representatives from academia.
Ardent has gained valuable insight, exposure and relationship building through this project.
Recently, Ardent completed decommissioning projects in Canada and a project to remove measurement towers at North Sea wind farms.
Ardent is currently exhibiting at the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference and will also exhibit at the Decom North Sea event at St. Andrews in November.
