ODS Anticipates Creating Up To 500 Jobs by 2021
UK decommissioning company Offshore Decommissioning Services anticipates that it will create up to 500 new jobs by 2021, according to a company spokesperson.

UK decommissioning company Offshore Decommissioning Services (ODS) anticipates that it will create up to 500 new jobs by 2021, according to a company spokesperson.

These will be “highly skilled jobs across engineering, operations and logistics”, the spokesperson told Rigzone.

Following 14 months of R&D and conceptual design ODS was established in 2017 by a team of oil and gas professionals. The company is opening its UK headquarters in Dundee, Scotland, in early 2019.

“It is ODS’s ambition to reduce the cost and time to decommission topsides, substructures and subsea infrastructure and we believe ODS, working with others in Dundee, can bring a holistic and commercially attractive decommissioning solution to the industry,” Lee Johnson, chief executive of ODS, said in a company statement.

“We wanted Dundee to be our logistics base due to the strong potential R&D network, including academia and industry bodies … Access to local available, capable and cost-effective labor force is also a major benefit for our business. We look forward to moving into Dundee next year,” he added.
