LONDON -- AMEC and SeaMetric International have signed a cooperative agreement to provide a new international offshore decommissioning service for clients.

AMEC and SeaMetric will cooperate to support each other with skills and experience on existing and new projects. For example, AMEC will provide project management and technical support to SeaMetric's Twin Marine Lifter (TML) projects in Asia and Latin America.

"The market for the decommissioning of offshore oil facilities is huge and working with SeaMetric will enable us to enhance our portfolio of asset support services to provide an integrated 'end-of-life' solution," says Neil Bruce, COO of AMEC's natural resources division.

"In mature markets, with new independent operators and oil majors requiring new combinations of skills, we are well placed to deliver offshore decommissioning around the world. We have supported many of these offshore assets from their original concept through to design, commissioning and operations and maintenance, which puts us in a unique position to project manage and engineer the end of their life too."
