MDT International Launches Decommissioning Training Courses

MDT International, a global training provider to the oil and gas industry, has entered into a strategic partnership to help energy businesses plan for decommissioning.

The company will work with two decommissioning consultancies, Strategic Decom and Well Decom, to prepare companies for the safe, efficient and cost-effective decommissioning of assets.

Drew Leitch, managing director of the Aberdeen based firm, said: “Projected North Sea decommissioning activity estimates vary, with the most conservative predicting the market will require over £30 billion of expenditure before 2040 in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) alone.

“Decommissioning presents global opportunity for the oil and gas supply chain and requires a range of highly skilled personnel and high value capability. Planning for decommissioning is a long and challenging process and providing staff with the necessary knowledge and understanding of the process is vital.

MDT International and its partners will introduce three training courses on decommissioning for 2017.

Leitch added: “The courses are developed and delivered by expert trainers with a vast knowledge of the industry. They are designed to provide an introduction to and awareness of activities involved in the whole life-cycle of decommissioning, including well decommissioning, and encourage discussion and opportunities for interaction.”
