North Sea Core CIC

Aberdeen

North Sea Core CIC is an initiative set up in November 2018 in response to the release of core material by energy companies through the relinquishment, abandonment and decommissioning of fields on the UK Continental Shelf. It is recognised that core material provides an incredible resource for understanding the subsurface and it is invaluable to geologists. Rather than seeing this important part of our offshore geoheritage fall into disuse or be discarded, we collect, transform and upcycle core material for use by the geological and wider scientific community. ​
