We are confident that the team can help us to assess the environmental impacts and satisfy the regulatory requirements accurately and objectively.”

With over 30 years’ experience of working in the North Sea, we have a strong understanding of the relevant environmental regulations, directives and international agreements to support customers through this detailed application process.”
