Marine Scotland’s opinion for Oil Rig decommissioning yard developments!

Marine Scotland have given the opinion that an Environmental Impact Assessment is not necessary for constructing an oil rig jetty and one of Europe’s largest caisson ‘dry dock’ gate structures at the Hunterston yard. These developments will require a masisve amount of dredging and pile driving and may have significant impact on local marine animals and the integrity of Southannan Site of Special and Scientific Interest.
