NEW DELHI, June 1, 2018

Project Development International (PDi), a specialist in engineering and management of energy-related projects, has achieved a major miletone having completed a decade of activity within the decommissioning sector.  

A part of the India-based Tattva Group, PDi was set up in in 2003. It has today become a major regional player that provides project management and specialist engineering support services throughout the life cycle of a project - from discovery to decommissioning.   

As a leading provider of multi-disciplined engineering, project management and project services to the international energy industry, PDi has worked with multiple clients since 2008, successfully completing more than 20 decommissioning workscopes, said the company in a statement.

Recently shortlisted as finalists in the Excellence in Collaboration category at Decom North Sea’s inaugural decommissioning awards, key projects for PDi include:
*Providing ongoing support to both Maersk Oil UK a company of Total and Maersk Supply Service (MSS) on the Janice, James, Affleck and Leadon projects, including the development and delivery of the decommissioning programmes together with project and discipline engineering, and offshore management

*Providing ongoing support to Spirit Energy with various decommissioning campaigns including A-Fields, F3-FA and ST-1.

Consolidating its commitment to the sector, PDi recently welcomed Steph Kiltie as decommissioning manager.

Bringing over 30 years of industry experience to the role, Kiltie has held a variety of positions with major operators and contractors including Taqa, Chrysaor, Shell, Lundin and Technip.

With a strong decommissioning background, she will lead PDi in this key business area as it positions itself for further development and growth.

Her reputation in this sector has been recognised with her recent election to Decom North Sea’s influential Decommissioning Leadership Group.

"The current estimate for decommissioning in the UKCS alone is £60 billion ($79.6 billion), with a target reduction of 35 per cent, bringing this to £39 billion ($52 billion). PDi recognised the potential and the opportunities for decommissioning activity within the North Sea over a decade ago; it is a sector which has grown significantly and will continue to do so in the future," remarked Kiltie.

"I am thrilled to have this opportunity to further develop the company’s already impressive decommissioning capabilities - delivering safe, innovative and effective solutions to meet the needs of our clients," she added.

PDi has also promoted Murray Scott to Subsea Manager. Working with PDi for almost eight years, Murray has led the company’s involvement in major projects ranging from new developments, subsea repairs through to execution of decommissioning.

In his new role Murray will be responsible for leading all PDi subsea engineering operations.  

Speaking of the appointments, Ramesh Madhavan, the head of strategy and integration at Tattva Group (Oil and Gas), said: "Both Kiltie and Scott are an invaluable part of our team and have made great headway in the development of these key areas of our business. Their appointments are significant in strategically growing our subsea and decommissioning businesses in the North Sea and international market."

Kiltie said PDi was confident that the company was well placed to develop and grow. We have additional key appointments in the pipeline and welcomed two new graduates in May through our Graduate Training Program, PDinspire."

"As we come out of one of the most severe industry downturns in memory, we are very excited for the future," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
