cessation of production (CoP) & Decommissioning

An introduction

CoP & decommissioning

Cessation of production studies (CoP) are a natural conclusion to our late life field development projects and seek to balance remaining potential and increasing OPEX. Our team provides decommissioning subsurface and wells basis of design studies to assess and optimise well barrier placement, with the aim, within relevant legislation, to minimise plug numbers and setting depth.
