Webinar to discuss innovation and efficiency in offshore decommissioning.
Subsea engineering and training company, Jee Ltd, will draw on its offshore decommissioning expertise to host a free-to-attend webinar exploring the topic on 13 April 2016. Available to a global audience, the webinar - ‘Innovation and efficiency in decommissioning’ - will be presented by Head of Late Life, Graham Wilson, and discusses how decommissioning can be done differently to realise cost savings and environmental and safety benefits.
Graham Wilson commented “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.” Graham has over 11 years’ experience working in the oil and gas industry and a detailed understanding of the decommissioning process and the associated issues and challenges. With a track record of reducing the cost and improving the efficiency of decommissioning projects, Jee has in-depth knowledge of the comparative assessment (CA) process and alternative approaches which may benefit clients' decommissioning projects.
Mr Wilson continued: “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.
This webinar is ideal for anyone involved in the decommissioning of offshore oil and gas assets and infrastructure andis part of an on-going series being presented by Jee, in-line with the company’s ongoing commitment to continuous development and knowledge sharing.
