LONDON – The North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) says the subscriber base for its Pathfinder service increased by 43% last year, with more than 1,700 active users among offshore operators and the supply chain.
The site currently shows 136 live contract opportunities, which include 12 capex projects and two opex projects added in the past three months.
There has been a substantial increase in capex opportunities of late, with recent updates to 50 projects in addition to the new ones.
They include oil and gas E&P and renewable energy projects, such as Morven offshore wind, with openings for offshore substations, blades and cables.
And Eni has uploaded details for its Liverpool Bay Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) transport and storage scheme offshore northwest England, with a detailed project summary and upcoming tenders.
Hartshead Resources has uploaded opportunities available for two new unmanned wellhead gas platforms in the southern UK North Sea.
Pathfinder, introduced in 2010 as an oil and gas portal, now features projects including well decommissioning campaigns, offshore wind and CCS.
Ten operators have recently posted operations and maintenance work prospects. In total, the site now highlights 75 decommissioning contracts, 33 in development, seven in the discovery phase, 11 in energy transition, and 10 in operations and maintenance.
The NSTA expects the sector to invest more than £30 billion ($36.93 billion) in decommissioning in the coming decades, providing more contract opportunities on the portal.
