Our region’s strategic North Sea coast location, sites, deep water ports, road and rail infrastructure and renowned engineering expertise, means North East England is the ideal location to site decommissioning activity, according to industry experts.
North East England is well placed to tap into the growth anticipated over the next 25 years, where an estimated £30bn will be spent decommissioning existing North Sea assets.
