GTL Search Proudly Supports dCarbonX in Ambitious Bains Gas Storage Project

GTL Search, a leading executive recruitment firm in the Energy Sector, is thrilled to announce its partnership with dCarbonX in their endeavor to develop the Bains gas field for gas storage purposes. This potential development marks an important milestone in the UK’s journey towards enhanced energy security and sustainability.


In a significant move, the North Sea Transition Authority granted dCarbonX a gas storage license for the depleted Bains gas field located in the East Irish Sea. Pending further regulatory approvals, dCarbonX plans to repurpose the field for gas storage, offering a potential storage capacity equivalent to three to four days’ supply for the UK. This development promises to provide a much-needed boost to the nation’s energy security, ensuring a stable and reliable gas supply.


To spearhead this transformative project, dCarbonX has entrusted GTL Search with the task of appointing a highly skilled and experienced Project Director for the Bains field. The selected candidate will initially be responsible for driving Phase 1 of the project, leading it through the critical Final Investment Decision stage. Over the course of the anticipated 18-month process, the Project Director will oversee various aspects, including subsurface modelling and design; surface assessment and design which includes an offshore platform, pipeline, and gas plant; permitting, public consultation and land identification; financial and market analysis, stakeholder engagement and commercial preparation.


The successful candidate will have experience of delivering FEED and long-lead project procurement plans for developments involving not-normally manned offshore installations, ideally with experience of gas storage projects. Interested individuals are encouraged to reach out to Dave Allan, GTL Search’s lead consultant for dCarbonX, to explore this exciting opportunity further.
