Subsea engineering and training company, Jee, will host a free-to-attend offshore decommissioning webinar on April 13 2016.
The webinar, titled ‘Innovation and efficiency in decommissioning’ will be presented by Head of Late Life, Graham Wilson. It will discuss how decommissioning can be done differently to realise cost savings and environmental and safety benefits.
“The growing decommissioning activity in the North Sea is forecast to cost £47 billion. With the government’s drive to reduce this cost by 40%, there is an inherent need to challenge the way that decommissioning has been performed to date,” says Wilson.
“The intent of many recent decommissioning projects has been to remove all subsea components to leave a clear seabed. However, is this really the most suitable solution from an environmental, cost and safety perspective? In this webinar, we will discuss the arguments for and against derogation cases.”
Process efficiency and innovation are also key to the reduction of decommissioning costs. With multiple operators tied into export hubs across the North Sea, the benefits of aligned decommissioning programmes, shared resource, campaigning and collaboration can be realised. The webinar will discuss these concepts and highlight some of the recent innovations within decommissioning that have led to significant cost savings.
