Oceanlab 2, Newburgh

We worked with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre in Partnership with Aberdeen University to create the National Decommissioning Centre, a multi-functional, and interactive space within the University’s Newburgh facility to tackle current and future challenges with world class research and development in partnership with industry.

We were involved in the project from the outset, assisting the OGTC with the formation of their brief, gaining building warrant approval, and throughout the tender and construction phase to the handover of the new centre. We worked closely with the OGTC and Aberdeen University to deliver a successful project.


Over the next decade, around 100 platforms and 7,500 kilometres of pipeline on the UK Continental Shelf are forecast for decommissioning, with costs estimated to be £59 billion to 2050. The industry aims to reduce this figure by 35%, a target set by the Oil & Gas Authority.
