Maximising reuse and recycling, minimising disposal.

We have been successfully carrying out decommissioning projects involving the dismantling of large oilfield structures and subsea 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%.

It’s 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.

Servicing the oil & gas sector

Decommissioning represents a significant opportunity as well as a challenge for the UK offshore oil and gas industry.

Decomissiong for two decades

We have two decades of experience dismantling oilfield structures and subsea infrastructure.

Strategically located

We operate from facilities in Aberdeen, Shetland, Evanton and Montrose, and will soon add Dundee.

Licensed and regulated

All our facilities are licensed, regulated & inspected by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).

Expertise, experience & continuous innovation

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. This includes excellent working relationships with Port operators and a subsequent ability to collect and/or receive redundant materials from a variety of onshore geographic locations throughout the UK to accommodate specific client requirements.

With sustainability in mind, 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.

With current strategically located licensed facilities in Aberdeen, Shetland, Evanton and Montrose, and the addition of our new quayside facility in Dundee opening in 2020 bringing our combined annual licensed tonnage to 360,000 tonnes, John Lawrie Decom is your decommissioning partner of choice.
