Course description

Decommissioning of offshore oil and gas installations is an inevitable part of the ‘Life of Field’ activities. It carries a multi-billion $ cost with no commercial return! Right now is the perfect time to take a hard look at the long-neglected decommissioning phase: our social license to operate as an industry depends on controlling leaks, especially from abandoned wells; the slump, current bargain prices and funding opportunities means it makes no economic sense to keep putting off the decommissioning projects; and the rise of turn-key decommissioning and abandonment services implies that both operators and service providers need to understand the risks and opportunities in the current economical scenario.

This training course is essential to all those involved in decommissioning who need to be aware of their obligations and liabilities for decommissioning and how best to manage those such that opportunities can be realized, and overall costs reduced. It will help your team improve your decommissioning strategies to reduce your offshore liabilities. Delegates will gain an in-depth understanding of the worldwide decommissioning market, current and future challenges and strategies that need to be implemented to prepare your companies for decommissioning projects. The course will provide very technical and detailed look at decommissioning techniques of various offshore installations enriched by the real-life case studies and lessons learned from more than 30 years of experience by the trainer. We will conclude the course by addressing the safety and environmental challenges as well as efficient cost management strategies.

Join us in Amsterdam

Thanks to its diminutive size and myriad museums, Amsterdam is reckoned to have more culture per capita than any other city on Earth. Take that London. But it’s not a case of quantity over quality: the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk Museum are stacked to the rafters with world-class works, while the Anne Frank House, once home to the eponymous diarist and her ill-fated family, provides an agonising insight into the plight of Jews during the Second World War.
