Scotoil Services Ltd

Scotland’s leading offshore decontamination and decommissioning specialist is celebrating 40 years in business.

Aberdeen-based Scotoil Services began servicing the North Sea oil and gas industry in 1982 and has expanded to develop the country’s premier onshore facility for the decontamination and disposal of redundant exploration equipment.

In 2021 Scotoil, handled over 5,000 tonnes of subsea decommissioning material achieving a 98.9% recycling and reuse rate.

The site in Miller Street is licensed for the removal and disposal of NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) waste and has amassed a wealth of experience in Radiological Protection Supervision.

Scotoil general manager Dave Goodwin commented: “In the last four decades we have developed a range of market-leading services that have been essential to the success of North Sea oil and gas exploration.”

“Today, as some parts of the industry wind-down, our decommissioning and decontamination expertise is more relevant than ever and I’m confident our greatly experienced team will continue to play a role in ensuring the sustainable recycling and disposal of exploration assets over the coming decades.”

In 2015 Scotoil was acquired by Tradebe a leading, global company in the environmental and storage terminal sectors.

Kristian Dales, Tradebe UK CEO said: “This is a major milestone for the Scotoil team. As sustainable business practices become increasingly important, their skills and expertise will no doubt continue to be in demand.”
