Montrose Port Authority highlights offshore decommissioning capabilities

Montrose Port Authority (MPA) will be promoting its capabilities as a centre for the decommissioning of offshore oil and gas structures at the forthcoming SPE Offshore Europe exhibition in Aberdeen.

Major investment at the port in recent years has seen the creation of three heavy lift pads with a capacity of 15 tonnes per square metre. In all, around £15m has been invested in the port since 2012, including major upgrades to quays on both the north and south sides of the harbour.

Additional heavy lift pads are now in the planning stage, which combined with the available deepwater berthing and ample operational quayside space, ensures that MPA is well placed to develop into a centre of excellence for offshore decommissioning.

Nik Scott-Gray, chief executive of MPA, said: “Over the next 12 months we will undertake a master planning process that will, amongst other things, allow the further development of additional deepwater berths and even more heavy lift pads.

“We believe this investment in our infrastructure will attract interest from companies involved in offshore decommissioning and we are looking to promote these capabilities at SPE Offshore Europe.”

MPA will be MPA will be exhibiting as part of the Scottish Development International Pavilion on Stand 2E42 at SPE Offshore Europe 2015 at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre from 8 September to 11 September 2015.
