Supply Chain Action Plans (SCAPs)
As of January 2018, the North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) introduced new measures to ensure operators work appropriately with the supply chain and derive maximum value from project activity.
Supply Chain Action Plans (SCAPs) were initiated whereby operators are required to develop effective action plans in respect of all new projects including decommissioning activities.
The purpose of SCAPs is to assist operators in demonstrating their contract strategies and concepts are comprehensive and well-positioned to deliver ‘best value’ in accordance with their Field Development Plan (FDP) or Decommissioning Programme (DP).
