Decommissioning – Delivering the Competitive Advantage in a $50 World

Speakers include:

  • Richard Heard – Decommissioning Policy Manager, Oil & Gas UK
  • Pauline Innes – Director of Decommissioning, Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning
  • Win Thornton – VP Decommissioning, BP

An inevitable part of a maturing oil and gas province, decommissioning activities are steadily increasing alongside industry’s drive to maximise recovery of up to 20 billion barrels from the UK Continental Shelf through exploration and production. Careful management is required to ensure the UK’s offshore oil and gas installations are decommissioned safely and cost-efficiently while protecting the environment.

This breakfast briefing focuses on how the industry is working collectively with stakeholders, including the Oil and Gas Authority through the MER UK Decommissioning Task Force and BEIS, to take responsibility for delivering decommissioning projects that meet regulatory obligations in a $50 world. It will shed fresh light on the cost drivers, assess the range of emerging commercial models and consider the barriers to their development.

Why attend?

  • Learn about the decommissioning challenge facing the industry and the progress to date
  • Examine decommissioning from a regulator’s perspective and learn how BEIS is managing the increase in decommissioning activity
  • Learn about the roles of BEIS and OGA in regulating the process of decommissioning
  • Find out about the uncertainties in decommissioning, why they exist and how they can be managed
  • Join a forum for discussion on the major issues with key stakeholders
