Decommissioning of Offshore Platforms

The session

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects will be presenting the session: 'Decommissioning of Offshore Platforms', highlighting the challenges and journeys involved for greater understanding of the decommission regulations coming into force.

The effective decommissioning of aging offshore platforms, subsea wells, and related assets is one of the most important technical and business challenges facing the oil and gas industry today and in the future. More than 600 decommissioning projects are expected to be disposed of during the next five years worldwide.  Decommissioning project opportunities exist in the Middle East, Caspian, Angola, Nigeria, North Sea and GOM.

Increasingly stringent decommissioning regulations are coming into force from governing authorities at the same time as the inventory of structures nearing end-of-life status is getting larger and more complex to decommission.

Decommissioning activities in deeper water and harsh environments, involving complex structures comprising hundreds of wells and miles of risers tied back to large platforms, present enormous challenges when planning the removal of these assets.
