The MER UK Decommissioning Task Force has received outputs from workshops arranged by Task Groups in support of the goal to ‘minimise the cost of decommissioning in an appropriate manner with a focus on delivering what would otherwise not be delivered by industry.’
Two workshops were organised, namely: Delivery Capability Theme – Contracting and Execution Model Workshops; Decommissioning Scope and Practice – Southern North Sea (SNS): Subsea
Delivery Capability –Delivery Capability has been identified as a priority area in seeking to deliver a 35% saving on a baseline estimated cost of decommissioning. The workshops identified a range of execution and business models from ‘business as usual’ to more radical concepts, which could be applied to one or more elements of the decommissioning scope.
Decommissioning Scope and Practice – the workshops explored the scope and practices of several SNS Operators with subsea aspects of decommissioning.
The outputs of workshops are detailed and available on OGA’s website.
