Abandonment & Decommissioning

An introduction

Abandonment & Decommissioning

As the industry is entering a phase whereby mature assets are reaching the latter stages of their productive lives, additional emphasis has been placed on operators to ensure that effective decommissioning of non-revenue generating assets are completed whilst complying with local legislation. We have proven capability and capacity to provide you with skilled resources tailored to ensure your de-completion and well abandonment projects are delivered in a safe and cost effective manner. Our integrated team of experts have vast experience working with our clients worldwide, leading and supporting decommissioning projects through all areas in wells P&A, from pre-abandonment reservoir studies, risk based assessments and cost estimate studies through to hands on execution of wells P&A workscopes.
