UI Impact Awards – Regional Winners

CONSUB's Bob Howard was a key member of the Inde Decommissioning  project team that was a winner of the Shell UI Excellence in Project Delivery Award announced in January 2012.

Judging focused on the impact the teams made on our business performance in 2011 in pursuit of our UI Ambition.  We had many excellent nominations and selecting winners was tough, but the following teams really stood out.

The winners are:

Excellence in Project Delivery


Project Name: Inde Decommissioning

Nominees:   Herman Zant, Rob Sparreboom, Andre Heemskerk, Roger Catchpole, Johan Storm, Bob Howard

Project Description:

The decommissioning of the Indefatigable field, an offshore complex with 5 production facilities, was the first project of its kind for Shell in the UK.  The project was delivered LTI free and undercut the original investment proposal of £300m by more than £60m.

In the long run, many lessons were learned on this project that will have benefits for many more decommissioning projects to come in this maturing basin.  An important trend setter for future abandonments in North Sea.

More information will be posted later at below link:


Bob continues to be a valued member of the CONSUB pipelines team. This award reflects the effort and commitment Bob has shown as a senior project engineer on the Inde decommissioning project.
