Decommissioning - the D word

How companies are building a £bn business opportunity - and potentially saving HMRC £15bn 0

Friday, June 23, 2017, London, The Geological Society

Our second decommissioning conference in London on June 23rd reviews how companies are creating a multibillion dollar industry - and maybe saving the government £15bn while doing it.

One answer - simple to state but extremely hard to achieve - is that the right sort of expert / leaders should be put in charge of decommissioning projects. People who with an extremely in-depth understanding of the oil and gas industry, yet are able to think beyond the industry's traditional 'explore / drill / develop' mindset. People who can gain the confidence of the offshore platform's existing operational staff, who know the platform inside out, but perhaps aren't too keen on the idea of decommissioning it. People who can overcome hurdles in the process and get all of the different parties aligned.

It is probably fair to say there is a direct link between the number of hurdles encountered in the process and the final cost - and hurdles can be created by individuals and companies, as well as by unexpected problems with the asset itself.

Note: This event continues from our past 'Decommissioning - the D word!' event held in June 2016 - see the agenda - see the delegates list
