Discussion: Could North Sea platforms be cleaned up rather than taken apart?

North Sea oil platforms will one day no longer be of use and efforts are under way to decommission them.

Dale Haslam has listened to both sides of the argument to gauge the opposing views.

For: ‘Platforms could be left to become marine life habitats’

Against: ‘Oil and gas companies can not dodge their obligations’
