decommissioning services to the oil and gas sector

John Lawrie has been successfully carrying out decommissioning projects involving the dismantling of large oilfield and subsea structures for over 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 most 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.

Expertise, Experience and Continuous Innovation

Our expertise and experience in the downsizing, deconstruction, processing, reuse and recycling of a range of subsea materials (including flexible risers and flowlines, umbilicals, manifolds, xmas trees, mid-water buoys, mooring systems, concrete mattresses and other associated items) enables us to provide a single integrated package for clients. This includes excellent working relationships with a number of Port operators and a subsequent ability to collect and/or receive redundant materials from a variety of onshore geographic locations.
