Energy transition presents both challenges and opportunities for offshore energy. On the one hand, the Oil and Gas (O&G) sector faces the challenges of decarbonising existing operations in the short term, as well as decommissioning retired infrastructure in the longer term; However, on the other hand, the offshore renewables (especially wind) sector is expanding at a rapid rate, with challenges relating to logistics, maintenance and energy transmission, for example.
